From our friend Scott Brown at the Pittsburgh Trib, he tweeted about Steelers Wide Receivers Antonio Brown & Emmanuel Sanders thoughts on Hines Ward, getting healthy for 2012, and their offseason plans.
Sanders doesn’t anticipate any lingering affects from the foot problems that plagued him this season. He said he will take a month off to rest and then begin his off season training program. He also mentioned getting regular treatment at the Steelers facility this offseason will go a long way towards getting healthy.
Steelers MVP Antonio Brown met with position coach Scottie Montgomery along with the other wide receivers this morning. He has his exit interview with coach Mike Tomlin later today.
Here is an except from his Q&A with reporters:
Q: Did your individual seasons reach surpass expectations?
A: It surpassed expectations. I came into camp as the fourth receiver and wasn’t prepared for what would happen to me, but I think I think I got a lot of opportunities and pretty much took advantage of them. And I continued to get better as the season progressed.
Q: Where does Hines fit into team and what does he mean to wide receivers?
A: He’s a guy who’s been in the league for a long time. He’s an older guy in our group so he brings leadership, he sets a tone. We definitely want a guy like that with us.
Q: You set a Steelers record for all-purpose yards in a season. Can you still get that much better?
A: Yes, I definitely can get better. I can get stronger and catch more balls. I definitely can’t better. Even with all the records, that wasn’t enough. We’re still at home right now. It’s all about continuing to play and getting to that highest level.
