Antonio Brown Goes On IG Live With Chad Ochocinco, Says "My Phone Line's Open"
Antonio Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers have been at odds recently. The star wide receiver got into an altercation at practice with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger a few weeks ago, which led to Brown sitting out the last game of the season. Since then, reports coming out of Pittsburgh suggest Brown wants out of the steel city. In a recent Instagram live session, Brown is seemingly unbothered about the situation.
In the livestream, Brown appears to be smoking cigars with retired football star Chad Ochocinco. “Yes, I’m 31 and I’m still excited to play the game. I’m motivated, inspired, encouraged,” Brown said, adding he’ll entertain any team that’s interested. “Stay by the phone. My phone line’s open.”
TMZ captured the stream and posted it in the video below.
Steelers president Art Rooney II explained Brown’s situation saying that they’re open to anything when it comes to their star wide receiver.
“There’s not much we can do right now; we have time to make a decision,” Rooney told the Post-Gazette. “We’ll look at all the options. We’re not going to release him, that’s not on the table. But I will say all other options are on the table.
The Steelers missed the playoffs this season with a record of 9-6-1.
