-B- Antonio Brown’s rise to stardom last year may have seemed like it came out of nowhere, but as the saying goes — overnight success takes 10 years. Brown is one of the hardest workers in the NFL and much has been written of his offseason workouts with Chad Ochocinco and others.
Brown’s at it again this offseason and The NOC followed him around Pittsburgh for a day, filming Brown’s commute and training at the Steelers south side facilities. I always love this kind of behind the scenes videos, but this is really well put together and an awesome glimpse into the day-to-day life of the Steelers MVP. Thanks to Tom for sending it along.
-B- The Post-Gazette has a nice piece on Valley HS grad and the Steelers 7th round choice in last week’s draft Toney Clemons. He’s a great kid and I’ll really be rooting for him to make the team, even if it’s a longshot.
In fact, Clemons said that when the call from the Steelers finally came, his friends and family were jumping up and down, celebrating even more than he was.
“My mom has me home,” he said with a smile. “She was just excited. You would’ve thought she got the call.”
