Ben Roethlisberger told Steelers.com that he considers wide receiver Antonio Brown a number one guy.
“The sky is the limit. He can be as good as he wants to be. I have seen growth in him and improvements and that is what we want to see. He has come along as a number one guy.” Roethisberger told Steelers.com
The Pittsburgh Steelers have been looking at Antonio Brown being that No. 1 guy ever since Mike Wallace decided to leave town and take his talents to South Beach. With Brown now playing the X receiver, he will run a higher volume of vertical routes while challenging at the short and intermediate levels.
Roethlisberger and Brown could be a familiar combination as the season begins and continues on. It may not be as dangerous as Mike Wallace and Roethlisberger, but for right now it’s a start and could be something that eventually grows into something that was similar.
What do you think Pittsburgh Steelers fans? Do you believe Antonio Brown is a solid replacement for Mike Wallace?
