After a rough game, Steelers WR George Pickens wipes Steelers from social media

Nov 4, 2023

After a quiet Thursday night game, Pittsburgh Steelers receiver George Pickens decided to take a trip back to high school. Maybe middle school.

The way to break up with a team is to scrub social media of all references to them, and that's what Pickens did with the Steelers on Friday. He removed all references to the Steelers from his Instagram page and posted "Free Me" on an Instagram story, according to 93.7 The Fan's Audacy page and other reports, including Blitzburgh. Pickens might have also unfollowed teammates Diontae Johnson and Kenny Pickett and coach Mike Tomlin, according to On3 Sports. Many noticed that Pickens didn't seem to celebrate Johnson's touchdown when he scored Thursday night in a 20-16 win over the Tennessee Titans.

Pickens had two catches for -1 yards against the Titans. Despite the win, Pickens was still frustrated, according to Mark Kaboly of The Athletic. Kaboly told 93.7 The Fan that Pickens was the first player to leave the field after the game, first player to leave the locker room and didn't talk to anyone after the game.
