The Pittsburgh Steelers offense went deep early and often during a joint practice with the Lions in Latrobe, PA on Tuesday, with Antonio Brown putting on quite a show at the expense on Detroit cornerback Darius Slay in one-on-one drills.
Detroit News: ‘Brown electrified the crowd of mostly Steelers faithful at St. Vincent College early during the practice session, blowing past Slay down the sideline for a long touchdown during one-on-one drills. The receiver went back to that well on a second rep between the two, but despite getting enough separation at the top of the route, he wasn’t able to come down with back-to-back scoring strikes. On the third and final one-on-one rep, Brown streaked down the sideline once more, hauling in a second touchdown.’
“The first one, I expected it for the crowd,” a surprised Slay said. “Three in a row? I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, I’m about to die out here”
“Hey Slay, we going deep all day, baby,” Brown chirped as Slay conferred with a ref to argue Brown was pushing off.
