The Pittsburgh Steelers have been engulfed in yet another situation involving one of their star players with All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown being the latest after he chose to not show up to practice on Monday.

He was asked about that, and he talked about all of that, but there also were questions about Antonio Brown relating to another outburst on social media, an incident on the sideline during the loss to the Chiefs, and a report that he was not at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on Monday.

Tomlin laughed when asked if Brown told the team he wanted to be traded. "No".

While Tomlin declined to discuss Brown's tweet with reporters, he did say he would be meeting with Brown at some point on Tuesday.

"It's important that we understand our position, the light that shines on us and the responsibility that comes with it", Tomlin said.

Antonio Brown's unhappiness with his team was apparent for all to see during Sunday's 42-37 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs: He had words with offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner in the second half, then exited the locker room in a hurry following the game.

Earlier on Monday, the All-Pro wide receiver responded to criticism from a former team employee who suggested Brown's success is heavily linked to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Brown was observed pouting on the sideline after a touchdown scored by a teammate, and that isn't the first time he's done something like this.

"AB has an incredible drive to win", Rosenhaus said, per Schefter.

"I'm looking forward to visiting with him today and discussing that, and some other things", the Steelers coach said at his weekly news conference. And that's what his entire focus is on.

Things aren't going well for the Pittsburgh Steelers right now.

Brown and Roethlisberger have connected for an NFL-record five consecutive 100-catch seasons together, and Brown now leads the National Football League with 33 targets, resulting 18 catches for 160 yards and one touchdown. "We want to put together a good plan". 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.
