Antonio Brown took to Instagram on Friday to tease a future explanation for the recent drama surrounding him and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"On a serious note, I'm going to address stuff at a later date, deeper details," Brown said in a live video, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. "All positivity, all encouraging. That's all it's about, man. My actions will speak louder than my words. My actions speak louder than anything I can ever say."

This is the first time Brown has publicly commented on the topic since he was benched for the Steelers' final game of the regular season. He did not dress for the contest and reportedly left at halftime, skipping the team's exit interviews the next day.

Steelers president Art Rooney II said on Thursday that the team won't release Brown but "all other options are on the table." He added that it's currently hard to envision the wide receiver with Pittsburgh in training camp.

"Whether the situation can be reconciled and have him back on the team next year, we're a long way away from thinking that can happen. We're not closing the door on anything at this point," Rooney said.
