Steelers benched Brown in season finale

According to a report from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Antonio Brown's absence from Sunday night's game against the Bengals wasn't due to a knee injury as previously reported.

Per the newspaper, Brown and a teammate got into it during Wednesday's walk-through, and the receiver threw a football in anger at an unnamed player.

"I called and texted and reached out numerous times and tried to find out what going on", Roethlisberger said, via Trib Live, saying Brown has been silent since Thursday morning. Clark details not only what he said when it happened but a turn in Brown's behavior from that point on. The dispute was so serious that it caused Brown to skip practice for the rest of the week and to sit out the team's season finale against the Bengals on Sunday.

Antonio Brown's antics were one of the many issues the Steelers had to deal with this season, and the team may look to trade him in the offseason after his latest stunt.

A source told ESPN that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was involved in the incident with Brown, but this wasn't a head-to-head clash, and more of Brown flaming up like he has in the past.

Mayfield was specifically asked about the gesture being perceived as him exposing himself to which he responded, "Oh, well I didn't so".

Roethlisberger said coach Mike Tomlin made the decision "right before the game" that Brown wasn't playing. "I think the biggest thing is, some of the guys that I've talked to, they tried to reach out to him and they haven't heard back".
