Brown's antics and Le'Veon Bell's absence over the franchise tag have placed a spotlight on the Steelers' locker room culture under Tomlin.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown didn't show up for work on Monday after the Steelers' 42-37 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, which might not be as big of a red flag if it hadn't been for his tweet Monday morning.
On Monday, after a former Steelers employee insulted his abilities, Brown made a decision to quote-tweet the comment by suggesting that he should be traded.
Bouchette and Dulac note that it's unknown if Brown's absence was excused by Mike Tomlin, and if it was, then this might be a whole to-do about nothing.
The Steelers may have another disgruntled star to deal with.

Brown leads the league with 33 targets, but none of his 18 catches has gone for more than 22 yards. 1/2 Steelers' WR Antonio Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus: "The tweet yesterday was not in reference to anything other than Antonio responding to a person he knows. And we're all frustrated because we're not winning right now". In fact, Roethlisberger has been so insistent about getting Brown the ball, he was intercepted once because of forcing the ball in that direction, and he risked another Sunday on a similar play against the Chiefs. They opened the year by tying the Cleveland Browns, a team that entered that game having lost 49 of its previous 53 games.
Brown's tweet - the full context was "trade me let's find out" - was in response to a tweet by former Steelers public relations staffer Ryan Scarpino that said the All-Pro receiver owes much of his success to Roethlisberger. "He's a competitor and he wants to be the best in the world and he probably is the best in the world".
"This guy's a significant guy, he's been a significant reason why we've been successful around here".
"I think that he's the best in the world", Roethlisberger said of Brown.
