Antonio Brown reminds he’s ‘not the general manager’ of Steelers, but likes direction of team
Four days after he took to social media to actively lobby for Patrick Peterson to join his Pittsburgh Steelers, Antonio Brown played it a little more cool when asked about it by reporters.
“I’m not a general manager,” Brown said. “Peterson is just one of my friends and reached out to me in regards and his situation. That’s about it.”
In the days since, Peterson backed off his trade request and reaffirmed his commitment to the Arizona Cardinals. But even without a shiny new star cornerback added to the roster, Brown believes the Steelers are headed in the right direction.
A victory Sunday against the Cleveland Browns would give the Steelers a three-game winning streak and allow them to hold onto first place in the AFC North.
“We are just winning; it’s all about winning,” Brown said after Friday’s practice. “If we’re winning football, the rest all takes care of itself.”
Individually, Brown, too is in the midst of his most productive football of the season. He surpassed 100 receiving yards in each of the victories against Atlanta and Cincinnati, and he had three touchdowns over that stretch.
Brown has scored in each of the past four games, with five touchdowns in that time.
