Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown wrote a thank you letter to Steelers Nation on Monday.

In the letter, Brown thanks his teammates and coaches for their work this season and Steelers fans for their support, while also declaring, “We will be back next year.”

Brown missed Sunday’s 23–16 divisional round loss to the Denver Broncos due to a concussion he sustained the week before against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was hit hard by Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict late in Pittsburgh’s wild-card round win, and exited the game with the head injury.
