Steelers Wasted No Time Giving Antonio Brown’s Number Away To A Rookie

There’s clearly no love lost between Antonio Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers franchise.

Their ugly divorce reached another petty level during rookie mini-camp when the team assigned Brown’s No. 84 to rookie tight end Milan Richard.

What makes it even more crazy is that Milan Richard is just a camp invitee out of Clemson University, so his status with the team just might end at camp and go no further.

During his time with the Steelers — Brown racked up 837 receptions, 11,207 yards, and 74 touchdowns. Something tells me that anybody dawning that #84 in the future will have a tough time duplicating the production that Brown displayed year after year.
