Antonio Brown may be looking to repair a burnt bridge in Pittsburgh.

The free-agent receiver tweeted Monday he wants to finish his career with the Steelers.

Brown clarified he doesn't want to play for the Steelers.

A sixth-round pick in 2010, Brown began his career in Pittsburgh and became one of the NFL's most dominant receivers during his nine-year stay with the club. However, his time with the Steelers came to an abrupt end after the 2018 season due to his public feud with longtime quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and former teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Since then, the 33-year-old wideout has endured rocky stays with the then-Oakland Raiders, New England Patriots, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was cut by the Raiders in 2019 before playing a snap with the team and was let go by the Patriots after just one appearance.

In 2019, his ex-trainer said he sexually assaulted her and another woman said he sexually harassed her and then sent her intimidating texts. He was charged with felony burglary in 2020, then suspended eight games for multiple personal conduct violations.

Brown resurfaced with the Bucs in 2020, helping guide the team to a Super Bowl championship. His stay in Tampa Bay ended last season after he ran off the field and left their Week 17 contest against the New York Jets. He was also suspended for three games earlier in the year for misrepresenting his vaccination status.

The seven-time Pro Bowler ranks second in Steelers history for receptions (837), receiving yards (11,207), and receiving touchdowns (74).
