The Pittsburgh Steelers may not have a win through two games this season, but the team leads the league in drama and big names causing headlines for missing practices. The latest comes from wide receiver Antonio Brown, who did not report to work on Monday. 

Brown raised some eyebrows on Monday on Twitter, with a tweet responding to some criticism of his play from a former Steelers PR staff member. 

Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus said that Brown's absence was for a personal matter, but Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin did not specify if Brown's absence was excused or not. Rosenhaus also has stated that Brown is not actually looking for a trade. 

The 0-1-1 Steelers are already dealing with the absence of running back LeVeon Bell, who is holding himself out of the lineup and has been called out by several teammates for his actions. He hoping to get a long-term contract extension with the Steelers instead of signing the franchise tag that was placed on him earlier in the offseason.
