Earlier this year Antonio Brown forced his way out of Pittsburgh after getting into a heated confrontation with QB Ben Roethlisberger
“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.”
Brown has been vocally critical of Roethlisberger since the incident occurred.
Last night, Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster went out of his way to show support for his QB despite the controversy surrounding him.
Brown appeared to subtweet JuJu this afternoon over the Big Ben tweet.
