The Steelers practiced their special teams as usual today, and were working on punt returns with the return man on the Ten-yard line learning to judge whether or not to return or let a punt bounce into the end zone.
Steelers rookie wide receiver Antonio Brown positioned himself under a punt with the cover team encircling him and breathing down his neck while the young Antonio waited for a high hanging punt to catch. Feeling the heat of the oncoming cover team, Brown took his eyes off the ball momentarily and lo and behold found himself just a skosh away from a glaring and menacing James “Silverback” Harrison otherwise known to his teammates as “Debo.”
The obviously rattled Brown dropped the ball and it bounced away. From the sidelines Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin shouted to Antonio, “Just tell everybody you saw Debo. They’ll understand!”
