The Pittsburgh Steelers are in need of some help at wide receiver following the injury news of Diontae Johnson. The starting pass catcher will reportedly be sidelined “a few weeks” due to a hamstring setback.

Have no fear, AB is here! Antonio Brown is making his pitch to rejoin the Steelers.

Pittsburgh was hit was some serious injury news following its season opener against the 49ers. Listed on the most recent report are veteran defender Cam Heyward, starting tight end Pat Freiermuth, a pair of offensive tackles, guard James Daniels, and wideouts Mike Boykin and Johnson.

The hits to the offensive side of the ball, particularly in the passing game, could lead Pittsburgh to seek short-term help. And what better option than a former All-Pro receiver that spent nearly a decade with the franchise?

On second thought, maybe there is a more reliable possibility given AB’s on- and off-field history.

This is the man that undressed himself on the sidelines before storming shirtless to the locker room, effectively ending his NFL career.

He’s since been seen exposing himself to bystanders at a resort pool, single-handedly taking down an arena football franchise, and locking himself in his home during a standoff with police.

That will probably be a “no” for Mike Tomlin and Co.

Antonio Brown wasn’t the only retired WR trending with the Steelers on Tuesday.

Terrell Owens spotted at Steelers facility.

Terrell Owens was seen in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, though he wasn’t there to work out for a roster spot.

Instead, it seems he might’ve been in town to talk to the team. It wouldn’t be the first time making the rounds on a speaking tour. TO also made a trip to Boulder this summer to chat with Deion Sanders’ Buffaloes before the season.

Ironically, the pass catcher played eight seasons with the 49ers, the team that just blasted Pittsburgh 30-7. Owens led the NFL in touchdown catches three times throughout his playing days, totaling nearly 16,000 receiving yards.

Maybe he can help give some insight to the current receivers on the roster.

The season didn’t get off to the best start for the Steelers, but the team will look to rebound in Week 2 with a matchup against the Browns.
