Just moments after hearing NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport say the Denver Broncos might be in line to trade for Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders who played four seasons with Pittsburgh was asked for his thoughts on the whole A.B. situation.
"It all sounds familiar," Sanders said of Brown's behavior. "But one thing I will say, when Art Rooney came out and said that, it's pretty much he's gone, because being around the Pittsburgh Steelers organization, Art Rooney doesn't say too much, but when he says something, he means it. This situation has really, really got out of hand. It's crazy, because I don't like to see, but I feel like Antonio brought it on himself. You cannot turn your back on your brothers, not on the Pittsburgh Steelers organization that gave you an opportunity to make you who you are in terms of Antonio Brown the football player. And so for you to leave on a Wednesday and then have your agent call on a Sunday is the ultimate disrespect to the Pittsburgh Steelers organization."
