If Antonio Brown does end up leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers this offseason, it's safe to say he won't mourn the end of his partnership with Ben Roethlisberger.

In an extensive interview with ESPN's Jeff Darlington, Brown discussed the tensions with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, coach Mike Tomlin and Steelers' ownership that led to his trade request on February 12. The long saga between him and the team - one that began to unravel with a season finale benching followed by social media rants amidst rumours of a trade request - reached its pinnacle with a meeting between the player and team owner Art Rooney II, after which Brown said it was determined that a trade would be best for all involved.

The wide receiver spoke about the situation during an interview with ESPN that aired Saturday and an appearance on LeBron James' HBO show "The Shop, " which aired Friday.

Roethlisberger has been critical of Brown's route running, particularly after a game-ending interception in a Week 12 loss to the Broncos this season.

"That's the type of guy he is".

The Spartans scored 19 of the final 23 points of the third quarter to take a 51-33 lead heading into the final 10 minutes. Merchant said. "Just something we can work on and tighten up on, I mean that's what you want to do this time of year".

Brown said the team only labeled him a "distraction" after he started "doing his own thing".

"Bro, you threw it to the defensive lineman". What the f*ck? I'm over here wide open. Brown said. "You need to give me a better ball!" "But, you know, and the professional level is, like, yo, like, if I'm your guy, make me know I'm your guy".

While Brown possibly coming to Washington may not seem like that big of a deal since the team still has issues at quarterback with Alex Smith expected to miss all of 2019 with that gruesome leg injury, Philadelphia can't afford to take a light approach. "So he's like, 'If you're banged up, man you can just go home.' Like you ain't even got to be here".

I'd go so far as to call this choice "ill advised". And it's like, you know what I mean, they control the narrative.
