Amid the drama with the Steelers, some players are capitalizing on the unrest with Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell.
Browns receiver Jarvis Landry decided to get in on the action by blatantly recruiting Brown and Bell to have a chat with him.
I don’t know why it’s taken this long but I think it’s time for a three-way FaceTime call!!! @AB84 @LeVeonBell

“I don’t know why it’s taken this long but I think it’s time for a three-way FaceTime call!!!” Landry posted on Twitter, tagging Brown and Bell.
The FaceTime request comes after Brown missed the Steelers’ final game of the season against the Bengals due to being benched by coach Mike Tomlin. Brown complained of lower body pain earlier in the week, but then failed to show up to an MRI exam and the team’s Saturday walkthrough.
There was also a report that Brown refused to practice last week after an argument with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, though Tomlin didn’t confirm that a spat took place.
Meanwhile, Bell has been absent from the Steelers all season after he held out due to failed contract negotiations.
The situations served as big distractions, and it didn’t help that the Steelers didn’t make it to the postseason for the first time since 2013.
Landry isn’t the first player to reach out to Brown this week — Jets safety Jamal Adams also recruited Brown over Twitter.
