Nothing gets people talking like a vague social media post from a professional athlete.
Early this morning, Pittsburgh Steelers superstar Antonio Brown shared a message on Twitter that simply said “Rise up” with no further explanation or detail.
Remember, this was the Falcons’ #catchphrase during their 2016 season, so naturally, some Atlanta fans took this opportunity to start imagining what Brown would look like in a red and black uniform.

The team itself later shared Brown’s tweet with a few emojis.
The idea of pairing the two best wide receivers in the game is undeniably enticing, but this is the part where we kill the buzz: Brown is never going to play for the Falcons. Pittsburgh would be insane to let him go under any circumstances and he’s under contract through the 2021 season.
Whatever it means, the important thing is we got some GIFs out of it.
