Antonio Brown says trade request is not about a new contract, addresses his future in Twitter Q&A
Brown took questions on Twitter on Saturday and addressed his trade request
And apparently what he wants is to host a Twitter Q&A where he addresses what's going on with his situation with the Steelers. On Saturday afternoon, Brown first addressed his rift with Ben Roethlisberger, accusing the Steelers' quarterback of having an and thinking he can call out anybody, including his coaches.
Later, Brown addressed the idea that what he really wants out of all this is a new contract, which he says is not the case. Brown also took on the idea that if all he cared about was football, he would not have sat out the final game of the 2018 season.
Sensing that he is done in Pittsburgh, other fans asked about Brown's next destination or whether it would be possible that he'd return to the only NFL team he's known. Here's what he had to say about that:
So, that's not exactly straightforward, but it seems like Brown is still set on leaving the Steelers and playing elsewhere, perhaps for an organization that is (in his opinion) more interested in Antonio Brown the man than Antonio Brown the football player, which is something he apparently does not feel has been the case in Pittsburgh over the past nine years.
