PITTSBURGH (AP) Antonio Brown's laundry list of issues with the Pittsburgh Steelers appears to include a problem with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's leadership style and how head coach Mike Tomlin treated the Pro Bowl wide receiver during the regular-season finale against Cincinnati.

Brown, who has requested a trade, took to Twitter on Saturday to vent in what amounted to his first expanded public comments since a falling out with the organization that has left his future with the club very much in doubt.

Asked by a Twitter user about the root of his conflict with Roethlisberger, Brown responded "No conflict just a matter of respect! Mutual respect!
