Antonio Brown has likely played his last game with the Pittsburgh Steelers
Earlier this week, reports surfaced about an altercation between Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown prior to last Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Brown missed practice on Wednesday, was listed on the injury report on Thursday and Friday due to his knee.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Brown did not attend the team’s meeting or walkthrough on Saturday, so he was benched as punishment on Sunday. They also reported that he had a dispute with a teammate during the week.
The altercation that led Antonio Brown’s benching last week was with Ben Roethlisberger. Im told it was fairly ugly and the WR was totally in the wrong. He went AWOL essentially for the 3rd time this season dating back to training camp

CBS’ Jason La Canfora reports that Brown had an altercation with Ben Roethlisberger that was “fairly ugly” and Brown was in the wrong.
Today, La Canfora has reported that Brown has requested a trade from the Steelers.
Antonio Brown has requested a trade. Im told it was not a demand but he has asked to be dealt. Very unlikely Rooney would capitulate. Brown has issues with Mike Tomlin and Ben Roethlisberger. Feels like the coach is too aligned with the QB.
