Bruce Arians Sees Too Much \'Diva\' In Antonio Brown
Bruce Arians, who was the offensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers when Antonio Brown was a rookie, doesn\'t like what he\'s seeing in the wide receiver.
Arians has been hired as the new coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
\"There\'s too much miscommunication, too much ... diva,\" Arians said on The Adam Schefter Podcast. \"I\'ve heard so many stories -- I like Antonio -- he plays as hard as anybody on Sunday, and he practices hard. He\'s just gotta make better decisions off the field, be on time, do some of those little things.\"
Arians said Brown isn\'t the same person that entered the NFL in 2010.
\"He was the hardest working,\" Arians said. \"He and Emmanuel Sanders, boy they went after it because [Steelers head coach] Mike Tomlin used to tell them, \'Two dogs, one bone.\' And at that time, we had Mike Wallace, Hines Ward -- I mean, we had a pretty good run for one of them to get on the field. By the end of the season, they were both winning for us to go to the Super Bowl.\"
