Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is either feeling really hungry lately, or extremely confident about his matchup with the Eagles Sunday.
According to the Observer-Reporter, Brown and the Steelers receivers plan to exploit the Eagles third cornerback, rookie Brandon Boykins.
“That’s the candy bar.”
Boykins, a 5-9 182 pound rookie has been known to give a big play or two so far this season.
“I know he’s a rookie. In these early games – that’s the only thing you can go by – and the film from the preseason, you can see his athletic ability,” said Steelers receiver Jerricho Cotchery of Boykin. “He’s getting some valuable experience on the inside right now. He has some great guys to learn from.”
“ He’s all right,” said Brown. “He’s given up a lot of plays. Whoever gets that guy definitely has to take advantage.”
Well if Brandon Boykin didn’t know he was the focal point of the Steelers game plan, he does now.
