After missing the Pittsburgh Steelers first two OTA practices of the offseason due to commitments related to Dancing with the Stars, wide receiver Antonio Brown is expected to be present and participate in Thursday’s session, which should be the final one this week.
After recording the season finale for Dancing with the Stars on Monday, Brown and the other show contestants were reportedly whisked away to New York for a Tuesday group appearance on Good Morning America. That appearance, however, reportedly wound up being delayed due to traffic problems. Brown also tweeted out Wednesday morning that the jet he was on wouldn’t start and that the wife of the plane’s mechanic had just went into labor.
After finally arriving back in Pittsburgh Wednesday evening, Brown was too excited about finally being able to join his teammates on Thursday that he couldn’t fall asleep.
With Brown now back at practice, several of the Steelers young cornerbacks will more than likely get opportunities at attempting to cover him during Thursday’s practice. Perhaps rookie Artie Burns is the one who should have had problems falling asleep last night.
