Antonio Brown isn’t on any NFL team right now. Despite that, he has continued to make headlines during the preseason. A few weeks ago, Brown started another viral trend. This time around it was a dance known as “Put that sh*t on”, also the name of a song on Brown’s recent album.

The dance has now graced the field as well. The new Pittsburgh Steelers WR, George Pickens, did the dance after scoring the first touchdown of his NFL career on his preseason debut against the Seahawks.

New safety of the Kansas City Chiefs, Justin Reid also did the “Put that sh*t on Dance”, after converting a PAT attempt. Reid was allowed to take the PAT ahead of Harrison Butker, and the former Texans’ safety didn’t disappoint.

Philadelphia Eagles WRs Jalen Reagor, AJ Brown, and DeVonta Smith were also seen doing the viral dance. The “Put that sh*t on” dance can go viral like the Griddy did last season. It is fun to watch, and the players aren’t shying away from giving Antonio Brown some attention.

The team hasn’t replaced Amari Cooper yet, who left for the Cleveland Browns. As a result, a wide receiver of Brown’s caliber can help them. However, that idea is still far-fetched because Jerry Jones has so far shown no interest in getting AB the job.
