It was speculated that the Steelers receiver Antonio Brown asked to leave the team after not qualifying for the NFL playoffs, but actually had problems with his teammates prior to the last game against Cincinnati. The administration had reported that his absence was due to an injury.
People are making a big problem that there was an outbreak or a fight between him and me. I do not know anything about that. If there was an outbreak or something, I’m sure I did not see it, «Roethlisberger said.
He shared that the day after the alleged incident he spoke with Brown and «everything was great», but he also revealed that he later made phone calls and sent him messages without receiving an answer, and he knows that other colleagues did the same and are in the same situation.
