With Antonio Brown now willing to have a face-to-face meeting with Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II, it would appear that he is also open to questions from fans in the form of a Q&A session he started on Twitter on Saturday.

Unsurprisingly, many of the responses involved questions about his relationship with Ben Roethlisberger and this was the first subject Brown chose to address from all of the inquiries he received.
While he would dispute any conflict between himself and the team’s star quarterback, his characterization of Roethlisberger as having an owners mentality is far from a compliment. His frustration with Big Ben apparently at the heart of his problems with the Steelers.
No conflict just a matter of respect! Mutual respect! He has a owner mentality like he can call out anybody including coaches. Players know but they can’t say anything about it otherwise they meal ticket gone. It’s a dirty game within a game. #truth https://t.co/MsSyBVd3Ny— Antonio Brown (@AB84) February 16, 2019
Given that Brown has promised to answer nine more questions, it seems unlikely this is the last we have heard from the wide receiver about what has happened in Pittsburgh to make him want to leave, and fans should prepare themselves for another drama field weekend.
His second answer of the day should be good news for the team trading for him, with Brown effectively denying he will want a new deal from his next team. This one I will believe when I see it (or don’t as the case may be).
Not for the money its for the love of the sport ! The commitment to win relentlessly consistently passionately ! Plus I made 70 million it’s public record not to be cocky just truth! Time to play for my own Team AB84 the family ! https://t.co/v4vFO2QCSf— Antonio Brown (@AB84) February 16, 2019
While his third was rather confusing.

Less then what you bargain for more than real #Truth https://t.co/Xiitf0si2I— Antonio Brown (@AB84) February 16, 2019
His fourth seemingly offering little chance he will remain in Pittsburgh next year.
Love Steelers Nation everything to my heart ❤️ no more ! https://t.co/uWwi5mB3R3— Antonio Brown (@AB84) February 16, 2019
The fifth appears to call out Mike Tomlin.
After the coach tell the team I quit while nursing some bumps then invite me to watch the show with same guys thinking I quit i can not stand with that! I’m the bad guy doe we miss post season think about it https://t.co/imrJ8jnnBc— Antonio Brown (@AB84) February 16, 2019
And the sixth an admission that he had not really meant what he had said earlier in the season when previously asked if he had an issue with Roethlisberger calling him out on his radio show.
Yea it’s positively over negativity mid season why fire back this perfect example of being the bigger man! When I could easily point finger ! I pointed at me because i bet on me faith in me not no one else https://t.co/9XnNhZGPQg— Antonio Brown (@AB84) February 16, 2019
For now AB seem stop have stopped at six, but as more answers are revealed, we will be sure to update this post.
