Antonio Brown reportedly refusing to answer Ben Roethlisberger phone calls
Antonio Brown has made it clear he wants to be traded by the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he seems fully committed to that idea.
Good Morning Football’s Peter Schrager wondered whether the situation could be salvaged by a phone call from Ben Roethlisberger to Brown to work things out. Fansided’s Jason Cole says Big Ben has tried to call Brown multiple times and that Brown won’t pick up the phone.
Roethlisberger has tried to call. Several times. AB won't pick up the phone. Whether he should or not is irrelevant. Fact is, he's not picking up. https://t.co/W2iLnHknmM

How long this has been going on is unclear, but it shows that Brown is not open to returning to the Steelers. If he were, he might answer these calls and try to work things out with his teammates. Instead, he’s ripped Roethlisberger’s “owner mentality” and seems to have distanced himself from the team completely. He wants out and that’s it.
