Antonio Brown is excited to unveil his new touchdown dance

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has extra motivation to score a touchdown Sunday against the visiting Minnesota Vikings.

In an interview with Yahoo Sports, the all-world wideout couldn’t help but gush over his new end-zone dance.

“With the relax move the NFL took for celebrations, I was looking for a dance that no one has ever done,” Brown said. “The video game ‘Destiny 2’ won me over and inspired me to share this dance with my fans. I really could relate to it in a football-like setting, you know once you get that killer route or that killer play.”

Make no mistake though, Brown’s dance is hardly a spur-of-the-moment decision. For him, practicing the dance is a vital component and a part of the process he enjoys.

“You gotta kind of visualize it, practice it in the mirror,” he adds. “You just want to express yourself. … Having fun, working hard, executing the plan that you set out.”

Of his new touchdown dance, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown tells Yahoo Sports: “You gotta kind of visualize it, practice it in the mirror.”

Remember too, that Brown has been fined over $60,000 by the league – mostly for touchdown celebrations – so it’s exciting for him not to worry anymore about a lighter wallet.

Brown admitted he was disappointed not to get in the end zone last week despite his stellar 11-catch (on 11 targets), 182-yard effort. That adds to the excitement for Sunday in the Steelers’ home opener.

“I’m so fired up for another opportunity and what better way to do it than at legendary Heinz Field,” he said.
