Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor and wide receiver Antonio Brown sat down for breakfast on their day off Monday to work out their problems, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"We had breakfast yesterday, sat down for about an hour or two, ironed out our differences," Brown said this afternoon. "We know how much we mean to this team, with him being a leader of his room and me being a young leader in our room. That's not what our organization is all about."

Taylor and Brown got into a shoving match during a drill in the first week of training camp.  On Sunday, things got a little uglier as the two battled for a pass in the end zone.  Both players went to the ground, but when Brown got up, he punched Taylor right in the face.  

The scuffle ended with Taylor icing his right eye and Brown having a conversation with general manager Kevin Colbert, who had to break up the fight on Sunday.

“Brothers get into it, we family,” Taylor said. “That’s how it is sometimes. Up in Latrobe, getting tired of seeing each other ... so when you have the same blood type, things are bound to happen. But me and A.B. are cool.”

The two still haven't said why the fight happened, but they went through practice on Tuesday without any incident.

Taylor told the Washington Post that Brown is like a brother to him.

 "He's proven what he’s done on the field. He’s a guy that can play special teams, punt return and can score touchdowns as a receiver. I just watched him grow and again I look at A.B. like a little brother of mine.”

If you have siblings, then you get it. If you have ever spent a year or more in a college dormitory then you get it. If you have worked in the same office with the same people day after day, then you get it too. What you are ‘getting’ is that these environments and situations can cause friction. A lot of friction that can sometimes be combustible. Such is what happens at NFL...
