PITTSBURGH — Probably the last person Pittsburgh Steelers fans and members of the organization want commenting on the George Pickens situation has.
As the team tries to settle the storm that was created by their star wide receiver, the player many are trying to compare him to has given his two cents. Pickens addressed the situation, saying he wasn’t frustrated, and a few of his teammates said they spoke to him about the issue and feel as if it’s headed in a positive direction.
Then, Antonio Brown made himself heard and quickly turned a situation that was beginning to calm into another wave of panic.
Brown kept it short and sweet, posting a picture that includes half of himself and half of Pickens with the words “George Pickens morphing into Antonio Brown!!!!!”

Reactions came fast, with most people trying to make a joke of the situation and say Pickens is not turning into Brown. But some are worried, and it was very clear in the comments that fans are having a hard time trying not to compare Pickens to Brown and are nervous another meltdown is coming for a Steelers wide receiver.

For those worried, Pickens is just 22 years old and has plenty of leadership in the locker room to help calm future frustrations. At times, it may feel like this is another uneasy situation the Steelers could find themselves in, but if Pickens adapts to the difficulties of the NFL, this will settle itself quickly.
As for expectations for Brown and his interaction with the situation, don’t expect it to stop anytime soon.
