Antonio Brown wants to retire with the Steelers
Visibly in need of attention, Antonio Brown was talked about earlier this week for having written on his social networks that he wanted to “retire as a member of the Steelers” from Pittsburgh.
The wide receiver is currently a free agent and it looks like no team wants to take a chance with him. He has also declared that he will not have surgery to solve a problem with one of his ankles before obtaining a contract in the NFL.
Brown started his career and played nine seasons with the Steelers. After seeing the outcry created by his post, Brown clarified that he did not want to play for the Steelers again, only to retire as a member of the Pennsylvania club.
The 33-year-old athlete played his last game on January 2 in a Tampa Bay Buccaneers uniform. In the middle of the third quarter of the clash against the Jets in New York, he removed some of his equipment, left towards the locker room of his, jumping and waving at the supporters present at MetLife Stadium.
A few days later, he explained that he had been forced to play injured, which the members of the « Bucs » denied. Brown joined the Buccaneers in 2020 after serving an eight-game suspension. He won the Super Bowl with Tom Brady and his gang that season.
The one who briefly played for the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders organizations caught 928 passes for 12,291 yards and 83 touchdowns in 146 career NFL games.
