Team president Art Rooney II said Wednesday he’s still not sure what led the perennial Pro Bowler to walk out on the team before the season finale. The Steelers benched Brown for their victory over Cincinnati and he did not show up to clean out his locker after the team missed the playoffs.
Rooney says the team has “left everything open” in regards to Brown’s future. While he did not rule out Brown possibly returning to the team in 2019, but added there aren’t many signs that Brown is interested in remaining in Pittsburgh.
Rooney added the team does not anticipate dismissing any more coaches after running backs coach James Saxon and outside linebackers coach Joey Porter were both let go earlier this month. Offensive line coach Mike Munchak took the same position with the Denver Broncos to be closer to his family.
