Antonio Brown was oblivious to what was going on in the Steelers’ locker room in Kansas City late Sunday night. He was clueless that he was making things tougher for his coach and his teammates prior to the toughest week of the season to date.
His mind instead was on his Facebook Live session and not what Mike Tomlin was telling the team immediately after Pittsburgh’s 18-16 divisional round victory over the Chiefs. As the views piled up (that was a constant source of pride for Brown during the 17-minute presentation), Tomlin was heard warning his players not to stir the pot ahead of the AFC championship game against the Patriots.
When you get to this point in the journey, man, not a lot needs to be said. Let’s Cheap Jerseys In US say very little moving forward, Tomlin said.

‘Jamaal has been busting his tail. Every day he’s in (rehabbing). He wants to still play. That’s just one you have to kind of see on how things work out for him. He’s had a couple of those knee (injuries). But he’s in the right frame of mind, I can tell you that for sure.’
As for Berry, the Chiefs have the option of designating him their franchise player for a second consecutive season. Reid, though, is hopeful Berry can be signed to a long-term contract.
‘We love E.B. I think everybody in our building would ditto that,’ Reid said. ‘If we can get this thing done, that’s obviously a priority in the offseason. It’s been a good marriage.’
