Martavis Bryant wants to have a conversation with Ben Roethlisberger when the Pittsburgh Steelers report to training camp in a couple of weeks.
"I feel like we need to," Bryant said. "We should have a man-to-man. Because some of the things he put out there about me, I kind of didn't agree with how he did it. So I want to sit down and hear his own opinion, man-to-man, about why he did that."
Bryant was suspended four games in 2015 and the entire 2016 season for violations of the league's substance abuse policy. Roethlisberger was highly critical of the wide receiver when he was suspended for last season, telling the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Bryant had lied to him and that the team felt "let down."
"I mean, at that time, I was going through a lot of stuff. I wasn't really even worried about his opinion at that time, because there was just a lot that was going on," Bryant said. "He's my brother. I love him. But at the same time, I have my own family outside of football. I have my own problems. I'm not just going to come up to you and open up to you about what's going on with my personal life. That's not how I am. We just didn't see eye-to-eye on that, but as far as right now, everything's great."
