Trying to interpret what Antonio Brown’s tweets mean is nearly impossible.

Whenever I try, I feel like I’m Indiana Jones attempting to translate ancient hieroglyphics.

Almost everything Brown tweets is:

With the way A.B. speaks on social media, you could also guess that he’s just working out again. Or maybe he’s welcoming new sponsors.

Who knows?


Regardless of what it means, many Steelers fans didn’t take kindly to the tweet. It appears Steelers Nation has fatigued of Brown’s online shenanigans.
