Antonio Brown Skipped Steelers Practice On Monday

Tomlin confirms Steelers WR Brown was absent from facility on Monday

Brown did not show up for work on Monday, a day after the Steelers' loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, and Tomlin revealed he meant to meet with his player on Tuesday regarding his absence.

When Antonio Brown sent out a tweet in which he said "trade me", he did it out of frustration and doesn't actually want to leave the Pittsburgh Steelers.

On Monday, Brown fired off a response to Twitter criticism from a former member of the Steelers PR staff that he wouldn't be much without Ben Roethlisberger, saying "trade me" so we can all find out. When asked Tuesday if one of the NFL's most dynamic players has asked to be moved, Tomlin responded "no, no" and laughed.

The best offensive player is out there coolin' it on the jet skis, the best receiver is skipping work in a huff, and the head coach is trying to piece it all together to prevent this season from slipping away entirely before the calendar page even turns to October.

Drew Rosenhaus, Brown's agent, told ESPN's Adam Schefter later Tuesday that Brown was not asking for a trade in his now-infamous tweet and that Brown had a "personal matter" Monday. I won't utilize this forum to address such things. I just assume leave those things in-house. I understand all that. There were some negative exchanges on the sideline. "I think it's just another reason why I don't do social media".

If Brown does continue to miss work, this could put the Steelers' season in jeopardy early. Said Tomlin: "I just want to stay focused on what's real and what's important: our preparation and our play this week, not only ours collectively but his included". We got a lot of football things to talk about, you know, performance, personnel, opportunities, challenges that the game of football presents.

Pittsburgh sits at 0-1-1 after tying the Browns in Week 1 and losing Sunday's shootout. Seriously", Tomlin said. "We gave up a few big plays, we're playing a team that's big-play capable. we haven't won a game yet. "He's a competitor, and he wants to be the best in the world, and he probably is the best in the world".
