"If you work for me for nine years, wouldn't you expect you to know my girlfriend's name or my dad's name or my kid or, you know, would you expect me to meet your kid or at least know you on the level of some sort of integrity to know, like, 'Hey, man, I appreciate what you do'". The quarterback blamed Brown for a late-game interception that sealed Pittsburgh's defeat, chalking up the blunder on his target's poor route-running. "Bro, you threw this [expletive] to the D-line". "To be able to play with an all-time quarterback like he's able to play with, I don't think he's understands how good he has it". Brown's conversation with James marked his first extended public comments since requesting a trade last month.

As soon as Antonio Brown hit the trade market, we knew there would be plenty of interest from clubs looking to bring major star power to their offence. "Big Chest is a good friend of mine, but I don't think he's going about it the right way, personally", Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said Saturday while speaking at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference.

"Now everyone wants to have a meeting, they want to talk, he wants to invite me over to his house", Brown said.

The Steelers are shopping Brown but general manager Kevin Colbert has stressed the team won't cut him or make any personnel move that would be detrimental to the team, reiterating there's a possibility the Steelers won't move Brown if they don't receive what they consider fair value.

"Criticism really is a part of the job, you know what I'm saying? And that's the thing people don't know is it's a controlled environment to where they could kind of determine if they want to let me eat or not". "They gotta pay me $2.5 million on March 17", he said.

Brown is owed a $2.5 million roster bonus if he is not traded or released by the Steelers before March 17. At this point, it's only a matter of time before the seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver is dealt to another team, finally putting an end to a long and exhausting saga between the two parties.
