Antonio Brown is not on good terms with QB Ben Roethlisberger.
Last month it was reported that Brown had requested a trade from the team after a heated exchange with QB Ben Roethlisberger in practice.
Former NFL wide receiver and current NFL Network analyst James Jones went on the record to say that he heard from multiple Steelers players that Roethlisberger’s constantly belittling of Brown reached a boiling point last week in practice.
“I have talked to a couple people in the Pittsburgh Steelers organization and they told me this has been lingering on,” Jones said. “I’ve been told in meetings [Roethlisberger] would take shots at AB. Like, ‘I don’t got to throw you the ball,’ and things like that. Wednesday in practice, I heard he ran the wrong route, Big Ben threw the ball on the ground, said, ‘Get him out of here. Get somebody else in there,’ and that’s when AB was at his boiling point and that’s when he went off.”
During a Twitter Q and A today Brown blasted Roethlisberger for having an “owner’s mentality” and acting like he’s beyond criticism while criticising others
Brown’s comments come a day after he liked several tweets calling out Roethlisberger over his past sexual assault allegeations.
