Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown is sticking by Kanye West as the president of his Donda Sports agency, even though high profile clients Aaron Donald and Jaylen Brown have left and Deshaun Watson fires back at his latest accuser.

🏈 Steelers Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald and Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown announced they are leaving Kanye West’s Donda Sports agency following the rapper and fashion designer’s recent antisemitic remarks. Meanwhile, Donda Sports president Antonio Brown released a statement in support of West. Many other public figures and organizations, including Adidas, have discontinued working relationships with West. 

🏈 Steelers It was a bad day all over for Brown, who owes $1.2 million in damages following a Florida lawsuit relating to his 2020 assault of a moving truck driver.

🏈 Steelers Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports thinks Mike Tomlin is hesitant to fire Matt Canada because he doesn’t want it to affect his rookie quarterback. “I would think part of Mike Tomlin’s thought process is not wanting (Kenny) to think he’s getting people fired a month into his career,” La Canfora said on 93.7 The Fan.

🏈 Steelers According to StatMuse, Najee Harris has fewer rushing yards than New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, fewer rushing touchdowns than New York Jets wide receiver Braxton Berrios, fewer receiving yards than San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk and the lowest yards per carry in the NFL. Through seven games, Harris has rushed for 329 yards on 100 carries (3.3 average) and one touchdown. He has 18 receptions for 86 yards (4.8 average) and two touchdowns.

🏈 Steelers The Steelers are projected to have the second overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, based on ESPN’s Football Power Index. The Detroit Lions are expected to have the No. 1 pick.

🏈 Steelers Entering Week 8, the Steelers rank in the bottom 10 in every major offensive statistical category.

🏈 Steelers The Steelers have ranked first in sacks every season since drafting T.J. Watt in 2017. This season, ever since Watt was injured in Week 1, the Steelers have ranked 32nd in sacks. After recording seven sacks against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1, the Steelers have had just five sacks.

🏈 Steelers According to Matt Williamson, Kenny Pickett has completed 87% of his passes when targeting Pat Freiermuth.

Freiermuth’s 1.89 yards per route run is fourth best amongst tight ends.

🏈 Steelers The Steelers partnered with Project Bundle-Up on Tuesday to take kids shopping for clothes to keep them warm and dry all winter long. Steelers players were partnered with kids through the Salvation Army Corps to pick out new coats, hats, gloves and boots at Dick’s Sporting Goods at the Waterfront.

🏈 Steelers According to Camryn Justice of News 5 Cleveland, Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson filed a motion for sanctions after the latest lawsuit against him—claiming this woman’s allegations against him weren’t given a “reasonable inquiry” by the law firm before filing suit, providing messages they suggest may show “a case of unrequited love.”

🏈 Steelers J.J. Watt and his wife Kealia welcomed their first child together. “Love and happiness have reached heights we never even knew existed. Koa James Watt 10.23.22,” Watt wrote on Twitter.
