Steelers receiver Antonio Brown and cornerback Ike Taylor are not getting along.
Brown and Taylor got into a fight after practice on Sunday and had to be separated by a group that included General Manager Kevin Colbert, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. This was the second fight between the two during training camp; they also fought a couple weeks ago.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said afterward that he thought the players would work it out.
“These guys understand what we’re working for, and when we step into stadiums, we’re together,” Tomlin said. “When you fight your brother, sometimes, it gets a little heated . . . the guys understand what that’s about, and they’ll leave it on the grass where it should be.”
The Steelers were concerned enough about this second fight that they convened a meeting afterward involving Brown, Taylor, Colbert, safety Ryan Clark, receiver Jerricho Cotchery and receivers coach Scotty Montgomery. Brown and Taylor were seen walking toward the locker room together after that meeting, so they’ve apparently been convinced not to have Round 3. Not yet, anyway.
