Antonio Brown spoke on receiving the MVP Award…
“It’s a humbling award,” said Brown. “I want to thank my teammates, everyone in the organization. I couldn’t do it without my offensive line and my quarterback, Ben (Roethlisberger).”
“Every time I come into this building I make the commitment to be my best and provide the team everything I can.”
“It means everything, any time you are voted on by your peers and put in this position, you are obviously thankful. You definitely don’t take it for granted. It’s something I appreciate.””
“We have one game to go and still playoff hopes,” said Brown. “I want to continue to remain positive, continue to provide the team situational plays and continue to never take anything for granted.”
