It was a bizarre sequence that might have ended his career even though he can contribute to any team, especially the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
But that’s an unfortunate memory for one of the best wideouts in recent history.
Therefore, do remember the time when Brown was dominating the league when he was still suiting up for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Brown was selected by Pittsburgh in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft and he lasted there until 2018.
During his tenure with the franchise, he became a five-time All-Pro and a seven-time Pro Bowler.
He also led the league in receiving yards and receptions twice.
In 2015, he had career highs of 136 receptions and 1,834 yards.
But even if he is not connected with the Steelers anymore, Brown still pays attention to his former squad.
That's on GP ⚠️💥👈🏿💥👉🏾👈🏿👉🏾💥 https://t.co/xY7ffZCe3x

When Pro Football Focus tweeted George Pickens’ celebratory touchdown dance which was inspired by Brown, the 34-year-old wideout responded, “That’s on GP.”
Pickens was selected by the Steelers in round two of the 2022 draft and is poised to make an impact this season.
End Of The Road For Brown?
If even the Buccaneers didn’t want him back, it’s hard to see Brown suiting up for another team again.
After all, his numbers aren’t the same as compared in the past.
In 2020, he only had 483 yards and four touchdowns despite winning Super Bowl LV with Tampa Bay.
The year after, he finished with 545 yards and four touchdowns in ten games.
Teams in dire need of a wide receiver have exhausted the deep pool offered by the 2022 draft.
Therefore, Brown’s window of playing opportunity might have closed already.
