AB shows up in style, as is tradition.
Pittsburgh Steelers star wide receiver, and Madden 19 cover athlete, Antonio Brown has made a habit of arriving at training camp in extravagant fashion. For instance, just last year Brown was chauffeured to camp in a rare 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom I Phaeton four-door convertible. In the two years prior, Brown pulled up to camp in two different Steelers-painted Rolls-Royces.
Today, AB ditched the Rolls-Royce, opting to arrive at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania via helicopter.
“Less driving, more convenient for the timing to get here and get ready to go,” Brown said, according to CBS. “I think if I pull up in the chopper [the media] would think it was pretty cool…I did it for you guys.”
“We know what’s expected, we know what’s at stake. This is the first day of the journey to get everything rolling,” Brown said. “I love this team. I think we got the desire to do something great and the process of the work to build the foundation starts tomorrow.”
Brown, who led all pass catchers with 1,533 receiving yards last season, is reportedly one of seven players to receive the coveted 99 overall rating in Madden 19. The six-time Pro Bowler is entering his ninth season in the NFL, all of which have been played as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Last season, the Steelers finished with a 13-3 record but were bounced in the Divisional Round of the playoffs by the Jacksonville Jaguars, despite Brown's game-high 132 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
