Steelers WR Antonio Brown makes an appearance at the Grammy Awards
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is currently embroiled in the most controversial moment of his NFL career, but that did not stop him from making an appearance at the Grammy Awards on Sunday.
Brown posted about his day at the event all over his social media, including a photo with himself and New England Patriots wideout and Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman:
Brown’s days with the Steelers seem to be numbered, as the 31-year-old reportedly wants to be traded after a tenuous season with the club that ended in Brown leaving the team before its season finale.
The seven-time Pro Bowler reportedly got into a heated argument with Ben Roethlisberger in the week leading up to the Steelers’ final regular-season game and apparently threw a football at the quarterback. He then refused to practice, complained of knee pain but refused to go for an MRI and then went AWOL on Pittsburgh before getting consequently benched by head coach Mike Tomlin ahead of the club’s Week 17 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.
In addition, Brown is now involved in a domestic dispute in which Wiltrice Jackson claims that she was pushed to the ground by Brown in an argument over child support. Brown has now filed for custody of his daughter in the aftermath of the incident.
The receiver hauled in 104 receptions for 1,297 yards and a league-leading 15 touchdowns on the season and remains one of the most lethal threats in the passing game in the NFL.
Whether or not Brown, who is under contract with the Steelers, gets dealt remains to be seen.
