Brown a no-show at Steelers' facility Monday

If he's unhappy and not locked in, things could go south in Pittsburgh quickly. They're winless in their first two games, despite some expecting them to be a serious contender in the AFC this season, having tied the Browns and lost to the Chiefs to open the year. Star running back Le'Veon Bell remains a holdout, looking for a long-term deal, and his continued absence has led to many of his offensive linemen to publicly criticize him.

Antonio Brown #84 of the Pittsburgh Steelers reacts after a 33 yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter during the game against the Green Bay Packers at Heinz Field on November 26, 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Bouchette and Dulac note that it's unclear if Brown's absence had been excused by head coach Mike Tomlin, but sources told the pair that they didn't not know why the four-time All-Pro skipped the team's video session.

Star receiver Antonio Brown isn't holding out, but he's clearly not happy with the team right now.

Brown made headlines Monday by replying to a tweet from a former Steelers employee who suggested Brown wouldn't have been as successful on another team.

It is worth noting at this point that Brown was one of very few Steelers to publicly back Bell when he did not show up to the facility prior to the team's Week 1 game, while almost the entire offensive line and front office criticized Bell in the media. As far as we know, Ben Roethlisberger showed up.

On Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers fell to 0-1-1 on the season after a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs at home.
