PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - Once again Antonio Brown is making headlines...and it's not for his amazing catches on the field or for his wonderful work off the field...It's because of his remarks that he has no freedom because of the media.

Steelers Insider Ed Bouchette told Cook and Poni sometimes you just have to take what he says with a grain of salt.

"I saw guys coming up after that. Journalists if you will and the media, TV and radio and they were all shaking their heads trying to figure out what he said,” said Bouchette. "I think you have to laugh at Antonio more than take him seriously."

Brown is upset over comments made as to why he missed part of the OTAs and Bouchette still believes he simply wasn't going to be there if Ben Roethlisberger wasn't there and he decided to spend more time with his family.

"He went to the first one...so did Ben...Antonio came to the second one and Ben wasn't there and then Antonio Stopped coming," Bouchette said. "I believe. I don't know it for sure but I do believe when he found out Ben wasn't coming He decided he wasn't coming either."

So are these distractions that continue enough for the Steelers to tire of AB and think about parting ways?

"I'm sure there is some frustration but let's remember what Art Rooney a year and a half ago labeled Antonio Brown's antics including the Facebook Live video which really set off Mike Tomlin as little distractions." Bouchette told the guys. "So I don't think it's nearly reached that point."
