Antonio Brown has been incognito since being listed as inactive in the final week of the NFL regular season in terms of communicating with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The future of the wide receiver remains uncertain at the moment after a falling out with his current employers.

Steelers president Art Rooney II was quite certain that Brown will not be part of the team when they begin their training camp for the 2019-20 season. But the ice seems to have thawed in recent weeks with reports now suggesting they could reconcile and the receiver will have a future with the most successful Super Bowl team in the NFL.

According to Fansided, a source with knowledge of the situation claimed that both Brown and the Steelers are keen to resolve any differences and get back on good terms. The report claims head coach Mike Tomlin remains fond of Brown and wants him back in the team ahead of next season.

Moreover, the wide receiver also seems to indicate that he is ready to open dialogue with the team after a cryptic tweet Thursday, which declared: “Open for business”. Until now there has been no communication between the player and the team since the regular season ended.

Steelers’ All-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey, who has been Brown’s teammate since 2010, is certain that a sit down between the team and the wide receiver will ensure they are back on good terms. He is keen for his “brother” to return to the team and admitted that they have had a lot of fights over the years.

“We are a band of brothers. We have been together a long time,” Pouncey said, as quoted on 247 Sports. “I have known my brother for 29 years and I promise you we have had a lot of fights. But at the end of the day no matter what anyone says, I am going to love him.”

“When you look at the bigger picture there has been so much accomplished by everyone here. You can’t tell me a good phone conversation or sit down can’t get things right. Hopefully it comes to that. Things have been memorable there. I had a lot of great memories with a lot of guys. For that to be so dramatic and the way people are printing it now, it doesn’t sit well. But I think they can get it right,” he said.

The Steelers president also seems to have softened his stance since his comments earlier in the month and is now ready to sit down with Brown and try and get on the same page before taking things forward.

“There are a lot of factors we have to take into account on it,” Rooney said, as quoted by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “We’d have to sit down with Antonio and understand where he is and make sure he understands where we are. There is some work to do before we figure that out."
