Steelers WR Antonio Brown aims for repeat of 2013

Posted: Updated:
LATROBE, Pa. (AP) - At age 26, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is already one of the team's elder statesmen.

Brown is the longest-tenured receiver on the Steelers and one of the NFL's rising stars. He set a franchise record with 1,499 yards receiving in 2013 and became the only player in league history to have at least five receptions and 50 yards receiving in all 16 games.

Brown welcomes the workload and also his new role as mentor to youngsters such as Markus Wheaton, Justin Brown and rookie Martavis Bryant.

Wide receivers coach Richard Mann says Brown likes to lead by example, but is also becoming a vocal presence in team meetings.
