Antonio Brown is not normally one to shy away from media attention, but in the aftermath of the Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, it would appear the league’s best receiver wanted nothing to do with the press. Opting for a quick shower and an early exit, Brown was on his way out of the door before reporters had even had a chance to enter the locker room.

Despite 9 catches for 67 yards and being targeted 17 times, Brown’s frustration with the way the game was going was clear for all to see at Heinz Field. Watching JuJu Smith-Schuster record 13 receptions for 121 yards can only have been one of his issues on the day.

Visibly angry on the sidelines, the cameras zeroed in on the Steelers’ star receiver in a heated exchange with offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner during the second half and it would be fair to say that Brown was far from an integral part of the offense in Week 2. With Ben Roethlisberger throwing for 452 yards against the Chiefs, it is something of a surprise to note that Brown only accounted for 15 percent of that yardage.

As unhappy as he was with how the game went, Brown still set another milestone as the fastest player to record 750 catches in a career, but this does not seem like something he will be celebrating on Sunday given his mood.

Hopefully his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, will have been able to console him with some news about a new endorsement deal as they left the field together.
