Roethlisberger: I went too far criticizing Antonio Brown after Denver INT

May 20th, 2019

In the months leading up to the trade that sent wide receiver Antonio Brown from the Steelers to the Raiders, Brown said several critical things about Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. One instance concerned an interception Roethlisberger threw late in a November loss to the Broncos and the quarterback's reaction to it. Roethisberger criticized Brown's route-running and said he should have thrown to JuJu Smith-Schuster, which earned a rebuke from Brown that included his belief that Roethlisberger “feels like he's the owner” because he wouldn't take blame for throwing the pass.
