The Steelers’ organized team activities were enlivened on Tuesday by a fight between rookie wide receiver Antonio Brown and second-year cornerback Keenan Lewis.
Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette described the fight as “a nice exchange of punches to each other’s facemask.”
“It’s just competitive nature,” Brown said. “Guys are fighting, there’s high intensity. But we’re all on the team. We’re all Steelers.”
Veteran wide receiver Antwaan Randle El told Brown, “you’ve go to know where to punch,” and Brown acknowledged that hitting someone in the facemask isn’t a very good idea.
“I could have broken my hand,” Brown said.
