Reports have indicated that the receiver was benched for the final game of the season due to a dispute with the team's quarterback.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown called one of his former teammates an "Uncle Tom" on social media for suggesting that the Steelers head coach let him go.
Speaking with ESPN anchor Scott Van Pelt, former NFL player-turned-ESPN-analyst Ryan Clark said that his former teammate, Antonio Brown, should part ways from the Steelers while simultaneously praising him as "one of the best wide receivers in the league."
"This is where [head coach] Mike Tomlin has to put his foot down and shop Antonio Brown," said Clark. "Obviously you want to get something for him. He’s one of the best wide receivers in the league. As a matter of fact, he’s one of the best football players in the league."
Clark simultaneously noted the controversial things Brown has done while serving with the Steelers, such as his using social media while Coach Tomlin was speaking to the whole team.
