Former Steelers TE Jesse James says getting rid of Antonio Brown had to happen

Jesse James the new Lions tight end talked to the media today and said he is glad the Steelers moved on from Antonio Brown.

New Detroit Lions tight end Jesse James was excited to get away from the drama in Pittsburgh. He seemed as if the 2 1/2 month soap opera between the Steelers and their star wide receiver was the the right move for their team moving forward.

“It had to happen,” James said in Detroit. “It was time for him to move on from Pittsburgh and time for Pittsburgh to move on from him. I think things grew out of control pretty fast there; I didn’t expect it to get done as fast as it did. But happy the Steelers and him are at peace and willing to move on. And really happy that’s over with.”

James on Wednesday penned a goodbye to the Steelers and to Pittsburgh in a post to his verified Instagram account, saying:

“I would like to thank the Rooney Family, my coaches, my teammates, the entire Steelers organization and Steelers Nation for giving me the opportunity to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was an honor and I am grateful for the last 4 years. Thank you Pittsburgh!”

Many Pittsburgh Steelers fans were happy that Antonio Brown was traded, while some are complaining, but it seems as if the players were fed up with the drama in the locker room.
