Steelers’ Antonio Brown back with the team Wednesday

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Bown is back with the squad after being away from the team’s facility on Monday.

Brown made headlines earlier this week when it was reported he skipped film review. At that point, suggestions were that it came without the permission of the Steelers’ brass. That’s something Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has since denied.

All of this came after Brown sent out a Tweet Monday using the dreaded five letter word “trade.” Obviously, it led to a ton of confusion around the league.

Outside of Brown’s Twitter activity, this seems to be a non-story. It’s clear that’s the way the Steelers themselves are looking at it.

Given the entire Le’Veon Bell drama and Pittsburgh’s less-than-stellar start to the season, it’s hard to blame people for thinking there was more to this Brown story. Things just don’t seem to be going too swimmingly for one of the NFL’s model franchises.

Even then, it looks like we can put this entire Brown thing to rest.

Pittsburgh heads into Week 3 with a 0-1-1 record. It’s slated to take on the undefeated Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the red-hot Ryan Fitzpatrick on Monday Night Football. That has to be the team’s focus over the next several days.
