Antonio Brown may not be in the league anymore but he sure is in the news. The wideout who is most popularly known for his outburst in the middle of a game while he was a Buccaneer has now hinted that he wants to return to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Brown is known to have burned bridges with all the teams that he was on which makes his return to not only these teams doubtful but even the remainder of the teams across the league do not want anything to do with him.

Brown has now become a rapper and entertainer. He and Kanye West have become close business partners and Brown seems to be enjoying his other career more than his NFL career. It is mostly because here AB gets to call his own shots and do as he pleases without anyone restricting him.

"Just wanna retire a steeler": Antonio Brown hints at wanting to return to the Steelers 2

The Pittsburgh Steelers have issued Antonio Brown’s former number 84 to an undrafted rookie, which is not the best look for him considering his latest tweets. Brown tweeted the words, “Just wanna retire a Steeler” ahead of this. This is very unlikely to happen considering how things ended with him and the organization. However, the only reason that Brown would want to reunite with the Steelers would be because of Big Ben’s departure.

If you recall, his primary issue was with Ben Roethlisberger and how the QB handled his business. With Big Ben gone and a new rookie QB in Kenny Pickett, Brown’s interest in the team appears to have been renewed. Brown’s on-field performance has never been an issue, he is a seven-time Pro bowler, four-time All-pro, and a member of the All-2010s Hall of Fame team.

Mike Tomlin, the HC of the Steelers was asked a question about getting Brown back in 2020, just after he was released by the Patriots following allegations of sexual misconduct. Tomlin said, “I’ll say this, once a Steeler, always a Steeler, we had great success over the course of nine-plus years with Antionio. We’re always going to be interested in his growth and development as a man and we’ll be open to assisting him in that, but we have no current business interest at this time.

It is to be seen what the Steelers think of Brown’s latest tweet, it is highly unlikely that they would get him back for a long contract extension but they could consider giving him a one-day contract to retire as a Steeler if that was what he wanted.
