NFL fans finally seem to agree with Antonio Brown about this one thing

Generally speaking, Antonio Brown has an unhinged presence on social media. He has used it to share images of himself with women in bed and photoshopped images of himself with other players' wives. Let's not forget the memes about divorce to mock Tom Brady, support for anti-Semitism, and much more.

However, every once in a while, he tweets something valid. He recently tweeted about Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver George Pickens, who plays for Brown's first team.

Pickens has been a great wide receiver this year, routinely making elite catches that many other receivers would struggle to make. However, the Steelers' offense, which has been in disarray for most of the year, has largely been unable to get him the ball.

Pickens has the chance to be great but needs more attention from the play callers and quarterbacks, according to Brown. Top wide receivers often get fed a lot of targets, something the former wideout wants his former team to do for Pickens.

NFL fans who routinely disagree with the embattled former NFL star agree on that front in a rare occurrence.

NFL fans also seem to think that Pickens needs more targets, but are shocked that the sentiment came from Antonio Brown. Pickens caught two passes for 53 yards in the win over the Carolina Panthers.


Could Antonio Brown return to the Pittsburgh Steelers?

At this point, a return to the NFL in any capacity with any team seems very unlikely for Antonio Brown. He's in legal trouble right now for a lot of things and is otherwise an incredibly controversial figure.

No team could sign him without fearing he'd walk away at some point as he has done in the past. The Steelers know that better than anyone.

Antonio Brown will likely not play in Pittsburgh ever again.

A reunion would make for a nice story, but the Steelers are probably the last team to even consider signing him. After how things ended with his tenure there, that bridge is as good as burned.

Mike Tomlin was his head coach and is still the Steelers' coach. He knows Brown and knows his behavior. Signing him to the roster would be a big surprise, to say the least.
