Brown revealed his self-created dance in late July when he performed at Rolling Loud Miami. It is meant to be performed to the tune of Brown's original song "Put That S— On." All one has to do is point to the left and then to the right, repeating the moves as long as one desires.

Pickens, a rookie receiver for the Steelers, performed Brown's dance after he scored a touchdown in the first quarter of Pittsburgh's preseason opener against Seattle on Saturday night. Unsurprisingly, he executed it pretty well.

Pickens' solid outing shouldn't be a surprise. He has drawn rave reviews during camp. He has been working with the first team, and coach Mike Tomlin called him "a really talented guy" in a recent interview.

"I don't think that anything surprises me, to be honest with you,” Tomlin said of Pickens. "I was able to go to Athens (Pickens played at Georgia) and see his pro day and sometimes that's all you need from an evaluation standpoint."

So Brown's celebration may not be all that takes the NFL by storm in 2022. Pickens could, too.

That still may be how it plays out, but following his performance on Saturday night, it's anything but a guarantee.
