Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, upset about the number of passes being thrown his way, confronted offensive coordinator Todd Haley on the sidelines of Monday's game with Cincinnati, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette.

Brown wanted more plays called for him, sources told Bouchette. Brown caught six passes for 57 yards against the Bengals. During the first two games, Brown was targeted less often than fellow starter Emmanuel Sanders and as many times as No. 3 receiver Jerricho Cotchery.

Brown's frustration could be a continuation of last year. He signed a six-year, $43 million contract before the season, but his numbers dipped from his breakout 2011 season. Heath Miller caught more passes and Sanders gained more yards than Brown.

BURKE: What to make of 0-2 teams

Pittsburgh's offense has struggled this season, scoring only 19 points in the first two weeks, so Brown is probably not the only unhappy player. If the team starts playing better, Brown's numbers will likely also improve.
