Former OC Bruce Arians Says AB Isn't Same Player The Steelers Drafted

He tells ESPN's Adam Schefter there's 'too much diva'

Former Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians says wide receiver Antonio Brown is not the same person he was when Pittsburgh drafted him in 2010.

The new head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers gave his take of the AB situation on ESPN Adam Schefter’s podcast.

Arians says what he notices about the Brown situation is, “too much miscommunication, too much diva . . . I’ve heard so many stories.”

Arians adds he likes Brown and that during practice and games, “he plays as hard as anybody . . . he’s just got to make better decisions off the field.”

Arians says when the Steelers drafted Brown he was one of the hardest working players on the team and that he and Emmanuel Sanders were drafted in the same year and both were fighting for one job at the beginning of the season.

“He and Emmanuel Sanders, boy they went after it because Mike Tomlin told them two dogs, one bone. At that time we had Mike Wallace, Hines Ward and we had pretty good room for one of them to get on the field and by the end of the season they were both winning for us to get us to the Super Bowl,” said Arians.
