Antonio Brown isn't letting the rumors get to him.
The Pittsburgh Steelers' star wide receiver has heard recently that some of his behaviour is wearing thin in the Steel City, but he isn't worried about that.
"I'll be a Steeler for life ... that's my plan," Brown told the host of the Dan Patrick Show on Thursday.
Brown is set to earn $8.71 million next season in the final year of his deal, but is widely expected to renegotiate a long-term extension with the Steelers this spring.
However, whether the team would be willing to commit that kind of money to him has yet to be seen. Brown came under criticism after he streamed a live video from the Steelers' locker room following the divisional round. Head coach Mike Tomlin could be heard in the background calling the New England Patriots "assholes", and Tomlin scolded Brown for his "selfish" actions.
Steelers president Art Rooney II confirmed the team isn't entirely happy with Brown, but said be believes Brown is awho is liked by teammates. Brown's recent issues were termed "little annoyances, with the emphasis on little," by Rooney.
Brown ended up recording 106 catches for 1,284 yards and 12 touchdowns in 15 games this season, and is still an irreplaceable weapon in the team's offense.
