During Brown’s first season with the Steelers, the team advanced to Super Bowl XLV but lost to the Green Bay Packers.
He finished his rookie season with 16 receptions for 167 yards in ten games. During his second NFL season, he became the first player in NFL history to have more than 1,000 yards receiving and returning in the same year. For his efforts, Brown was selected as a punt returner for the 2012 Pro Bowl.

Brown is the son of retired Arena Football League star “Touchdown” Eddie Brown, who was named the best player in the league’s history in 2006, and Adrianne Moss.
Eddie Brown played wide receiver for the Albany Firebirds and collegiate football for Louisiana Tech.
Brown has not officially retired and he does remain a free agent, but a pair of tweets from mid-May would indicate that he has called it quits.
“Just wanna Retire a Steeler,” Brown wrote on May 16. Seventeen minutes later, he clarified that he meant AS a Steeler, writing “Not Play Jus Retire so we Clear.”
Less than two months later, Tony Toe Tap was on the stage at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami, not as a festival-goer but as a performer.
Brown debuted his new smash-hit single “Put that sh-t on,” which is basically just him yelling “Put that sh-t” on and doing a dance that is already catching fire at NFL Training Camps. Just ask Brown and he’ll tell ya:
So yeah, he’s leaning all the way into his potentially budding entertainment career, more proof of that theory coming when Brown tweeted out a quote on Thursday from …. yup, you guessed it, Antonio Brown.
At first glance, it appears like it could be some sort of retirement statement, or possibly a comeback statement. It was neither.
Brown remained one of the game’s best receivers afterward. He tallied more than 4,000 receiving yards and 36 touchdowns over the next three Pro Bowl seasons.
But one Pittsburgh radio host believes his demeanor changed after the concussion. Colin Dunlap, host of 93.7 The Fan, said Brown’s outrageous and strange behavior that led to him not playing in the NFL began with the Burfict concussion hit.
“He hits A.B., then, literally, as I am under center for the next play, he points at JuJu and says, ‘You’re next,’” Roethlisberger said to the media after the game.
“How do you allow that stuff?” Whether or not this was said is still disputed today, but it?s undeniable that Burfict had a problem with the Steelers wideouts.
Furthermore, whether Brown’s head is “messed up from football” is anyone’s guess. But Brown’s unusual behavior from 2019 on is undeniable.

If ever there was a player to make a comment to himself, then have a graphic made of himself giving that quote to himself, and then tweeting that quote out himself, that player would obviously be Antonio Brown.
That prophecy was fulfilled on Thursday, just before some preseason action got underway around the NFL without Antonio Brown. The almost-certainly-retired wide receiver tweeted out a graphic with a quote from himself about his biggest regret. It’s a perfectly Antonio Brown comment.
“My biggest regret in my career doesn’t involve calling my GM a ‘cracker,’ or showing up to Raiders camp late in a hot air balloon with frozen foot, or throwing rocks at that UPS driver, and it definitely doesn’t involve taking my shirt off and doing a victory lap around the Jets’ stadium mid-game while throwing up deuces,” Brown began. “My biggest regret is that I’ll never get to see me, Antonio Brown, play a game live. I can watch the game afterwards, but I can’t imagine what that was like for you to all see something like that. Like watching the Beatles or Jesus perform at Red Rocks.”
The best part about Brown’s comment is that despite it showing an incomprehensibly large ego … there’s also a shred of it that makes you nod your head. Watching Antonio Brown play was a rather special experience.
He obviously detonated his own career with his own behavior, and that short-circuit leaves him “only” in the top 25 in all-time receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.
