Carr: Antonio Brown The “Greatest Worker” I’ve Ever Seen

Antonio Brown missed the first day of voluntary workouts on Tuesday, but Derek Carr didn’t sound concerned in an interview on Wednesday morning. In fact, Carr went so far as to say Brown is already one of the best teammates he has ever been around.

“I can’t speak on anything that happened in Pittsburgh [involving Antonio Brown],” Carr told Sirius XM’s Adam Schein. “I can’t speak on anyone else’s relationship, you know?”

“Just like it’s funny that people still talk about me and some other people’s relationships,” Carr continued. “But I can’t speak on that, man. I don’t know what’s really going on. What I can tell you is that from day one, obviously I’ve known [Antonio] for a long time now so I was texting him and we were talking way before this was even a real thing, and the fact that when it happened, since then we’ve spent more time together than I remember spending with a lot of my teammates, and I spend a lot of time with my teammates. He is at my house, he’s coming to my kids birthday parties, he’s coming to throw with me every day, whenever I need him.”

“He’s flying out. Whenever I say ‘hey man, you in town?’ He’ll say ‘yes’ and show up the next day. He’ll show, but on Instagram I’ll see him on a plane. He’s the greatest worker I’ve ever seen in my life and I do not throw that around loosely.”

For what it’s worth, Ben Roethlisberger acknowledged this week that he “lacked in leadership” last year and offered a soft apology of sorts to Brown.

Brown didn’t seem impressed (assuming the tweet was directed at his former quarterback).
