According to reporters Ed Bouchette and Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Brown did not report for work at the team's facility on the South Side of Pittsburgh on Monday. But what everyone wanted to talk about was whether or not wide receiver Antonio Brown was at work on Monday.

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.

Brown, an All-Pro wideout, has made a couple of headlines in recent days. Brown is a fiery competitive guy and it certainly seems like the pressure is piling on and he might have just needed a day away from all the stress.

Also on Monday, Brown responded to a critical tweet from a Steelers fan by suggesting that the team trade him in order to find out if Brown would put up the same numbers with a different franchise.

The Steelers have Tuesday off and are expected to report back on Wednesday.

Coach Mike Tomlin is clearly struggling to motivate his players, and offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner is in his first year. Brown was visibly upset on the sidelines towards the end of Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, and did not stick around long in the locker room after the game.

"Tomlin said Antonio Brown was not at Steelers headquarters Monday but the Steelers coach is meeting with Brown today". Tomlin says he will handle any issues in-house but expects Brown to continue to be big contributor, and that Brown hasn't asked to be traded.

Of course, Brown wasn't the only notable absentee from Monday's meetings: Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell continues to hold out amid a contract dispute and was spotted jet-skiing in Miami on Monday.
