Antonio Brown blasts Steelers in latest rant

The controversial ex-Steelers wideout is speaking out yet again.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is firing back at his old club yet again, voicing his displeasure with what he feels is a lack of "respect" by the club for allowing new Steelers wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson to wear his old No. 84 jersey number. 

The agitated Brown took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to vent his anger over the perceived slight over handing his old jersey number to some "random guy": 

“They ain’t really got the respect for me that I think, or the respect that you think you earned,” Brown wrote. “That could be trauma in itself to know just like, da*n. I gave my life to the Steelers and these guys don’t even give a sh*t about my body of work. They will just give a random guy who scored kick returns, who never even got 1,000 yards as a receiver ever in his career [my number over] a guy that was number one in history.”

Not surprisingly, the responses were swift: 

Brown, who last played in the NFL in 2021 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before infamously departing in the middle of a game in controversial fashion, also took over the now-defunct Albany Empire of the National Arena League after failure to pay mandated dues and fees. 

He was also arrested last October for failure to make child support payments.
