Big Ben: Brown hasn't returned my calls

Antonio Brown Reportedly Missed Game Due to Dispute with Roethlisberger

The Green Bay Packers' should look into trading for Pittsburgh Steelers star receiver Antonio Brown.

On Wednesday Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin denied the reports that Brown has formally requested a trade.

The Steelers quarterback continued to play down talks of the fight and revealed that he had spoken to the wide receiver on Thursday and that everything was okay between them.

"That was such a big thing we had to deal with every single week", Roethlisberger told 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh. Working in favor of the Steelers when it comes to Brown is that he's under contract until at least 2021 when he has an out clause in his contract.

That said, Brown will turn 31 years old this offseason. Tomlin does believe that Brown was dealing with some type of injury, but added to his knowledge that Brown has not undergone the MRI.

Some context: Brown reportedly requested a trade earlier this week after he sat out of the Steelers season finale, following a dispute with Ben Rothlisberger. I've got confidence in myself, and if you're going to put that uniform on me or you're going to put me on that football field, I am the greatest of all time'.

When asked about the player in the week offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner said: 'I'm not going to answer any questions about Antonio.

Brown, who finished the season with 104 catches for 1,297 yards and an NFL-best 15 touchdowns in 15 games, was also a no-show on Monday during the team's final meetings.

Tomlin said that "it became hard to communicate" with Brown on Friday evening and Saturday.

"If there was a blowup or something, I sure as heck didn't see it", Roethlisberger said (via ESPN). "Like I said, I'm blessed to play with him and I consider him one of my closer friends". "I know guys that are frustrated". Tomlin is expected to address the media Wednesday for an end-of-season press conference.
