Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been pretty open to telling the media about his teams’  locker room division that led to missing out on the playoffs. Now he’s told ESPN Radio in New York that his relationship with receiver Mike Wallace was “awkward” after he signed a six-year, $43 million contract during Wallace’s holdout last summer:

Some bit of awkwardness. You know, a guy who has been there longer than I and definitely wanting a deal, but you’ve got to not dwell on that and that kind of situation prohibits bad blood to a team where guys are there for themselves, and not buy into the team aspects and could definitely cause a drama within a team.

No one is expecting Wallace to be back in Pittsburgh, and it sounds like the Steelers are happy he’s gone.
