Antonio Brown has been the talking point of many conversations. From digs at Brady, to his infamous rap albums, Brown never fails in piquing the interest of people. Subsequently, another remembrance of Brown is his performance when he played. While his current actions might have controversial reactions, AB’s play was always touted as one of the best in the league.

One such conversation, where AB was the talking point, occurred between Shannon Sharpe and Michael Vick. Vick and AB had played together briefly. They were both parts of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Vick spoke about AB’s temperament on the team and his demeanor as a teammate.

How was Antonio Brown with the Steelers?

Antonio Brown played 130 games with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He had a stellar record of 837 receives, 11,207 yards, and 74 touchdowns. Furthermore, in just 130 games he had 31 ATT as well. He performed splendidly with the Pittsburgh Steelers and was liked by his quarterback, Michael Vick as well.

Michael Vick appeared on Shannon Sharpe’s ‘Club Shay Shay’ show. Vick spoke about AB’s demeanor and behavior as a teammate. The four-time Pro-Bowler mentioned that he thought AB was a great teammate. He said, “other than him getting a little aggravated that he didn’t get the ball, AB was a great teammate man.” Furthermore, Vick also said that he had no clue that AB would turn out the way he did in terms of his feud with Tom Brady. Vick also praised AB’s work ethic and his actions as a teammate.

The ex-wide receiver received some praise from his ex-teammate. However, Vick was also shocked by the way AB’s behavior has become with a former teammate. He also stated that he did not think that the rapper would be like this. With an old teammate so flabbergasted by his behavior, one wonders what happened for AB’s behavior to change so drastically.
