The Antonio Brown-Ryan Clark feud hits another level

first_imgAntonio Brown just doesn’t know when to quit (other than Week 17). His ongoing dispute with former Steelers safety and current ESPN personality Ryan Clark continues to drag on, despite Brown now being on a new team in Oakland.After a Twitter user called out Clark for rarely being accurate in his analysis of the Steelers, Clark tweeted back that he was spot-on in his previous analysis of Pittsburgh’s need to move on from Brown back in January. In the interview, Clark said, “This is where Mike Tomlin has to put his foot down and shop Antonio Brown. . . . This is about the fabric of the team. This is about the guy that goes Facebook Live as your coach is talking and leaks information outside the locker room that never should be there. This is about the guy publicly talks about not getting the ball or issues with the offensive coordinator. . . . At some point, when you’re an organization that’s built on ‘team,’ that’s built on integrity, you have to show the rest of the locker room that.”Brown responded to a clip of the interview on ESPN’s Instagram account with the words “Uncle Tom.”Clark said that he didn’t believe Brown fully understood what he wrote and that those were just his initial reactions, but clearly, things have not simmered down between the two. The Raiders will kick off their season Sept. 9, hosting Denver, coincidentally on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football.” MORE: NFL Mock Draft: SN’s Vinnie Iyer predicts the first three roundsHahahahaha!!
