If you were hoping for that reunion between the Pittsburgh Steelers and wide receiver Antonio Brown, this news is going to be disappointing. The former Steelers star was interviewed during something called a Fan Controlled Football game and said he isn’t planning to play for any team in 2022.

This is in stark contrast to a tweet Brown sent out just days ago noting he wants to retire a Steeler. This prompted plenty of heavy debate among Steelers fans about if the team should do it as well as about his legacy in the NFL, should he never play again. 57 percent of fans in our poll didn’t want Brown to return to the team just to retire as a member of the Steelers.

Brown had the single greatest six-season stretch in NFL history. From 2013-2018, Brown never had fewer than 101 receptions and 1,284 receiving yards in a season.

But Brown’s recent history in the league as well as what seems to be an abrupt end to his career on shaky group does call into question his legacy. Do his 928 career receptions trump all the antics that cost him multiple jobs in the league? As always, let us know in the comments below.
