Steelers Jerry Rice on Antonio Brown: ‘He Wants to Come Here Really Bad’ Published 6 months ago on January 14, 2019 By Donnie Druin 2shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment EmailThe Antonio Brown saga in Pittsburgh took another wild turn on Monday, thanks to some insight from the very player Brown looked up to as a young player. Jerry Rice is widely considered the greatest receiver to ever step on an NFL football field, winning three Super Bowls with the San Francisco 49ers and establishing himself as first ballot Hall of Fame player. For all of Rice’s accolades on the field, he may have just added “news breaker” to his repertoire. Brown posted on his instagram story a screenshot of him video chatting with Rice, driving further speculation that Brown wants to join the 49ers. In a rare moment of insight from the their conversation, Rice revealed what many had feared. “Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. He wants to come here really bad.” – Rice, when asked about Brown potentially joining the 49ers via 95.7 The Game. Brown’s admiration for Rice has long been noted, as he has painted portraits of Rice throughout his house and has openly talked about the love/respect for him on social media.

A post shared by Antonio Brown (@ab) on Jul 11, 2018 at 9:07am PDT This is just the latest buzz in what has been a constant whirlwind of news and rumors circulating around Brown after not answering phone calls from the Steelers front office in the days leading up to the team’s last regular season game. After a series of tweets between 49ers tight end George Kittle and Brown shortly after news broke of why Brown had missed the team’s last game, there has been heavy speculation Brown could find himself in San Francisco. “If it was left up to me, he’d be here in a heartbeat.” said Rice in his interview Monday. The blitz was already on for Brown to be in a 49ers uniform, yet the recent comments from Rice only doused fuel on the fire to get the once beloved Steelers receiver out of Pittsburgh. The Steelers cannot officially move Brown until March 13th, giving nearly two months of time and thought for the likes of Art Rooney II, Kevin Colbert and Mike Tomlin to decide Brown’s ultimate fate. If Brown has any say, however, all signs point towards him packing his bags and going to the bay area. 2shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment Email Related Topics:Antonio BrownfeaturedJerry RicePittsburgh SteelersSan Francisco 49ersTrade Up Next Steelers Confident in New OL Coach Shaun Sarrett Don't Miss Is Ben Roethlisberger a Bad Teammate?
