Even with wide receiver Antonio Brown's Pittsburgh Steelers future in doubt, he's more than happy to defend himself via Twitter. He feels that Brown will get along much better with quarterback Tom Brady than he ever has with Ben Roethlisberger (which doesn't seem to be hard, given how Brown and Roethlisberger have been feuding for weeks).
The ageless former India skipper impressed with both ball and bat to shut his critics. I used to watch him and it was like he was meditating.
