Nothing but a headline really, zero facts other than "not arrested" and "involved in domestic dispute", which could mean an argument with a family member. 

 

And the only source is TMZ (every other story I see references them), but that tweet has ZERO info, I did read a bit more and confirmed that police were called and investigated, and that it involved a woman calling police alleging "misconduct" by Brown. 

 

He may have done something stupid that could have major impact, or this could be nothing. Barely worth a reaction at this point.

Regardless he can't seem to stay away from drama.  If I was the Steelers Id be looking for the best deal I can find ASAP, before something else happens and his value really goes down

I agree, but can they survive losing Bell and AB? It's a tough one.

Depends on what they do in free agency and in the draft. They have a good enough offense without both AS LONG AS they shore up their defense. Their offensive line is top 3 in league and Connor until concussion was awesome and on pace to out stat Bell. Ben has always found receivers to throw too his entire career. Some argue that because  AB is such a little whiny bitch causes Ben to force him the ball which causes alot of his INTs.. I buy that somewhat.  Either way they won nothing with both of them so get rid of the drama and be done with it.

True, and I don't see how they can keep him after bailing out on his teammates right before the biggest game. It's inexcusable.

A lot of good points here.  I think you have to ask yourself how much BS do you want to tolerate.  if it is AB it is going to be mountains of BS.  Personally I'd rather suck and not have AB then be sort of ok with AB and lots of drama.  I am not sure that's the choices or not, but that's the risk.  You could argue they'd be better as Gourdeau stated bc Ben wouldn't feel he has to force the ball.  At this point, I'd get what I can get as long as it's reasonable and get out of a bad situation.  If a guy quits on you in the biggest game of the year when won't he quit on you?  If you enjoy that scenario, by all means, keep him.

The stupid with this guy is just unfathomable. He wants to be traded yet making it very hard for other teams to make any reasonable offer. What value is there in the steelers trading him for anything less than an early 2ND round pick or a solid player coming back.. They eat 20 mil of his contract either way. Might as well keep him and deactivate him every game to prove a point and wait until a good offer comes in..Better than cutting him and letting a contender grab him for nothing.. theyd be selling him very low right now. Wait until a contender emerges early season after an injury and when they get desperate. 

 

Hes been a knuckle head sincw burfict clobbered him a few years back. I seriously question his mental health. He's  also got 2 pending legal cases potentially and was just convicted today of a traffic offence ( didn't show up)

AB is certainly not going to help the situation for future prima donnas after how he burned the Steelers.  Steelers need to move on ASAP and salvage what they can here

Again I see no need to rush in making a trade just to get rid of him. Playing is out of the question yes, buthe unless you're getting a 1st or 2nd rounder in return or a starter in return you aren't making any headway on the playing field either way. 

 

He's at his absolute lowest value. Sit and wait and keep him away from the team in the meantime. Once the season starts the teams with injuries or who are a piece away will come knocking.. the rams come to mind.

 

This isnt like if they dont trade him he can walk.. dude has got 3 years on his deal and has been paid a ton up front. He has ZERO leverage here other than he is a distraction.

I hear your point, but I think we disagree that he is at his lowest value.  I think his value could get quite a bit lower actually.  And he is due another 2 million plus bonus in a month if he isn't traded.  It's only partially related to his value.  He is a cancerous aspect to the Steelers now and it threatens to eat away at the season like Leveon if it goes on too long.  Any more crazy antics, arrests, police investigations, weird tweets, injuries, etc and he could be worth quite a bit less.  You might be right that perhaps his value improves closer to the season when people get nervous and want to make a deal.  I am just not sure I'd take the risk.

AB at it again.  Liking tweets referencing Big Ben's rape allegations.  Now saying Ben has an "owner's mentality" and that the team he is playing for now is AB84

Personally I wouldn't touch this guy and his salary with a 10 foot pole.

He is falling apart at the seams. I wouldn't touch him either. He is losing his mind.
