Actually, that's probably why Brown is one of, if not, the best wide receiver in the game today and over the past five years.
Brown was clearly upset with his role during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs and did not address the media after the game.
According to reports, Steelers star wide receiver Antonio Brown was a no-show for team meetings and film review on Monday morning, just hours before publicly floating the idea that the team should explore trading him. That's generally the approach we take in non-football things, such as social media, decorum, etc., and so hopefully this will be the last time I'll be discussing things such as that in this setting.
Tomlin has proven to be a very good coach - he's reached two Super Bowls and won one with the Steelers - but his team has dealt with way too many distractions during his tenure, especially for a squad that usually is among the AFC's best.

Coach Mike Tomlin was asked Tuesday whether Brown was at practice the previous day.
Brown was not in the locker room or part of the walkthrough Monday, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first reported Brown didn't show up at all. Tom Brady had a similar outburst on Sunday. I'm not going to get into the details of why he wasn't here, or whether he was excused, and all of those things. Seriously", Tomlin said. "We gave up a few big plays, we're playing a team that's big-play capable.
Brown will nearly certainly be available next Monday when Pittsburgh travels to surprising Tampa Bay (2-0). "He's going to continue to be". Tomlin said it's possible the team could work out punters with Jordan Berry struggling.
