Ben Roethlisberger says his relationship with Antonio Brown is great and the quarterback downplayed a reported incident between the two last week.
"That's the kind of baffling thing to me. People are making a big deal about a walkthrough on Wednesday, that there was a blow up or a fight between he and I," Roethlisberger told KDKA-FM in Pittsburgh. "I don't know anything about that. If there was a blow up or something, I sure as heck didn't see it. A big deal was made about that. I'm not sure where that comes from."
Roethlisberger said he talked to Brown on Thursday morning and said "everything was great and fine" between them. However, he said Brown has failed to return his calls and text messages since then.
"I've reached out to him numerous times," Roethlisberger said. "I've called him and texted him. And I know other guys on the team have, too, and haven't heard back from him. But he and I talked Thursday morning and there were no issues."
