Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is putting his recruiting hat on. His target is none other than Dez Bryant.
Pittsburgh Steelers star Antonio Brown is on the cover of Madden 2019 but apparently, he’s trying out franchise mode as a general manager for the Steel City.
Recently on Twitter, he didn’t hold back any punches. He wants veteran wide receiver Dez Bryant to join the black and yellow and chase that chip.

“Come play with me @DezBryant let’s get the chip … Eat Greedy … big plates”
If this recruitment is successful, “Big” Ben Roethlisberger will be eating greedy with all that talent on offense. Throw Le’Veon Bell in the backfield (when he finally reports that is) and this could be one of the better offenses in the National Football League.
The reason this is even a possibility is because the Dallas Cowboys and Bryant couldn’t come to an agreement on his contract status, so the team dumped him on the side of the road after eight magical seasons. Well not all of them were magical.
To be honest, his stats have been trash over the last three years, but he still has that Pro Bowl potential in him. And coincidentally the Steelers have an opening at wide receiver with Martavis Bryant in Oakland thanks to a draft day trade. But they got rid of Bryant for demanding the ball and having some attitude issues, does that sound familiar?
Luckily, it wouldn’t be a crazy investment of years or resources because Bryant is looking for a one-year prove it deal, so he can really chase the money next offseason. Arguably there’s not a team in the NFL that can boost his stock as much as the Steelers can.
Not only does he have the opportunity to put up video game-like numbers in this system. But he’ll be on a team that can make a legitimate playoff run, something he hasn’t really experienced in his career thus far.
