The message appeared on Wednesday, the same day that the Oakland Raiders released Brown.
The Steelers traded Brown into Oakland for a third- tier and fifth-round draft pick afterwards things soured between your superstar wide receiver and the crew by the conclusion of last season.
Asked Wednesday by reporters in Oakland if he had any regrets on the way he managed things by the ending in Pittsburgh, Brown dedicated to young fans.
“To some kid out there from Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh will always be my family,” Brown stated. “Those guys gave me the opportunity once I had been a 21-year-old kid. Evidently, people are playing things that are now being written and said. At the end of your afternoon, it’s about the way you make people feel. I think I left people feel nice and great, very inspired, the way in which they saw me operate, the way in which they saw me drama with. I know Steeler Nation has a bad day today, but it’s consistently love. I encourage every kid who watched me work and has been inspired by everything I’ve done. I hope that I continue for a good example, continue to be a good role model and proceed to inspire people.”
Brown recorded Hall of Fame-type production in Pittsburgh with 837 receptions, 11,207 yards and 74 touchdown catches in nine decades, for example an NFL-record six consecutive 100-catch seasons. But a hierarchical connection between your gamer and the team overshadowed the big numbers, and also a divorce became inevitable.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler and Paul Gutierrez contributed to the record.
