Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown’s inability to get off social media is now apparently causing real problems.

According to Peter King, at least one team was scared off by Brown’s actions on Twitter, and there might be more that follow.

For those of you who might have been living under a rock for the past couple months, Brown has been absurd on Twitter lately. He liked tweets about allegations of sexual misconduct against Ben Roethlisberger, tweeted that Big Ben has an “ownership mentality,” and has pretty much been a nonstop distraction. (RELATED: Antonio Brown Might Only Be Worth A Sixth Round Pick In A Potential Trade)

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody, and it’s what I’ve been saying for a very long time. What general manager in their right mind would ever want to touch Brown at this current moment? The man is just begging to cause problems.

I honestly don’t give a damn how talented he is. It’s not worth the potential problems.

Brown is doing everything he can to get shown the exit door in Pittsburgh, but he’s closing a ton of other doors by his juvenile actions on social media.

I can’t believe that he’s not smart enough to realize the damage he’s causing to himself.

As I’ve said before, I think Brown has essentially killed his value for teams around the league. He only has himself to blame for his idiotic behavior.
