PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - Steelers defensive captain Cam Heyward is echoing the sentiments  his teammates receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and center Maurkice Pouncey made about receiver Antonio Brown Wednesday.

Speaking during Pro Bowl Practice in Orlando Thursday, the All-Pro defensive end said he wants Brown back in Pittsburgh in 2019.

Heyward added “we all want AB to be here.”

Steelers owner Art Rooney said earlier this month that the team would not release Brown but that “all options” were being explored by the team after Brown would not get back to coach Mike Tomlin or Rooney and missed the final game of the season against Cincinnati.

Brown was selected to the Pro-Bowl but was replaced by team MVP Smith-Schuster after the Steelers said AB was dealing with an injury.
