Pittsburgh Steelers fans were dealt a blow earlier this month when it was revealed that star receiver Antonio Brown was not going to attend his teams offseason workouts.

No doubt Mike Tomlin and the Steelers were uncomfortable with the decision, and when news spread that Brown was forgoing workouts in a bid to get a new contract, Tomlin and co were likely furious.

However, what a difference a week makes. Pittsburgh fans thought they were going to have to worry all offseason about whether or not Brown would holdout out for a new contract, but the star receiver made an important decision on Monday to extinguish all of those fears.

Great news 

According to ProFootballTalk, Antonio Brown has decided to turn up at the Steelers facility after all, with the website citing pictures from Pittsburgh's workouts on Monday.

"Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown didn’t report to the start of the team’s offseason conditioning work along with his teammates and his absence was tied to a report that he was looking for a new contract and mulling an extended absence that could lead him to miss mandatory work at both minicamp and training camp," ProFootballTalk reported on Monday.

"Brown chimed in later in the week to say that he was hanging out with his new child and was looking forward to getting back to work with the team. The wait for his return to the team’s facility wasn’t a particularly long one. The Steelers posted some pictures from Monday’s workout session and Brown is among the featured players."

Crucial player

Brown was the league-leading receiver in the last NFL campaign in terms of receiving yards with 1,698, while the wideout also had 13 touchdowns, so it is obvious how important he is to the Steelers going forward. No doubt Tomlin will be happy he's not holding out for a new contract.
