Ex-Steelers WR Antonio Brown claims he was ‘never friends’ with Big Ben
By Tommy Jaggi
Antonio Brown is at it again. This time the former Steelers receiver is taking to social media to say that he was ‘never friends’ with Ben Roethlisberger.
As if Steelers fans needed any more reason to resent their former All-Pro receiver, Antonio Brown, has reached his wits end.
Independent reporter, Dov Kleiman, recently posted a tweet about Ben Roethlisberger that Brown felt the need to respond to. He posted a video of Michelle Tafoya of NBC Sports sitting down with Roethlisberger. Ben said he wished he would have never called out Brown publicly, and that it ‘ruined his friendship’. A.B. apparently didn’t accept his apology:
For some reason or another, Antonio Brown felt it was necessary to explain to the Twitter world that he and Ben were ‘never friends.’ He finished his tweet with an exclamation – apparently telling Roethlisberger to ‘shut up already.’
We don’t know what type of falling out these two players had, but it obviously wasn’t good. Brown tried to play the victim for a while, but after seeing all of his outrageous antics over the past year (and especially this past offseason), it’s beginning to look more and more like Brown was at the root of the problem.
Antonio Brown was an excellent player for the Steelers and one of the best receivers to ever put on that black and yellow uniform. It’s a shame that he continues to tarnished his already poor reputation with bone-headed comments like this.
Brown is on the fast track to becoming the most hated player in the NFL, and one of the biggest divas the league has seen (if he’s not there already).
We will never know exactly why Brown chooses to do the things that he does. But all football fans can agree that he his two scents is completely unnecessary at this point. He needs to move on and stop airing his dirty laundry for the world to see.
