Antonio Brown rips into ex-Steelers S Ryan Clark

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Steelers All-Pro receiver didn't take kindly to Clark's comments about marijuana, telling the Tribune-Review comments like that, and others, stood in the way of the team building together positively.

Call it a New World Order.

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown ripped into former Steelers safety Ryan Clark Sunday, telling Tribune-Review reporter Alan Robinson Clark's comments recently about many players using marijuana, along with other comments he didn't specifically attribute to Clark or anyone else, have hindered the growth of the Steelers locker room.

"That's the type of things we need to get better at. When you see stuff like that happen repeatedly year after year — from a guy calling LaMarr Woodley out, from a guy that's calling the team out for illegal uses of a substance — it just shows the lack of team camaraderie we had in the locker room, the lack of togetherness," Brown told Robinson.

It's been a while since Woodley's conditioning was brought up anywhere but the lack of that issue, both for Woodley as a Steeler and whomever took exception to it speaking to the media.

Brown dug into Clark a bit more, too.

"When you see things like that, it shows you how guys feel when they're not part of the team anymore," Brown said Sunday of Clark, who has since signed with the Redskins. "It's a form of bitterness or taking a shot at the team because you're not there anymore."

Brown called Clark's ambition to become a media analyst as the reason for his comments as well. Generally speaking, his point was to set the tone for the team moving forward into 2014 - suggesting the chemistry the team had in more successful years has been missing the last two seasons.

Brown set a franchise record for receiving yards in 2013, racking up 1,499 yards on 110 catches (two shy of the franchise record in that category) and was named second-team All Pro. He made his second career Pro Bowl team as well in his fourth season in the NFL.
