Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger ‘genuinely sorry’ for comments about Antonio Brown

Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger ‘genuinely sorry’ for comments about Antonio Brown "I genuinely feel bad about that and I'm sorry," Roethlisberger said. "Did I go too far after that Denver game? Probably.” Brown was reportedly unhappy about Roethlisberger’s criticism and he eventually requested the Steelers move him in mid-February. The wide receiver was then sent to Oakland about one month later in exchange for two draft picks. Roethlisberger and Brown played together in Pittsburgh from 2010-18. "That's the thing about media and social media, as soon as you say 'sorry' it only goes so far,” Roethlisberger said. “You can't take it back.

Antonio Brown briefly returned to Pittsburgh for some unfinished business.

The Raiders wide receiver was in town Tuesday and posted a video to his Instagram from the Allegheny County Courthouse ahead of a summary appeal hearing regarding his traffic stop from last year.

"To all my fans in Pittsburgh, I never got to say goodbye," Brown said in the video. "I’m here today in the downtown Pittsburgh court."

Brown was found guilty of reckless driving in February and forced to pay over $400 in fines after failing to make his court appearance in Pittsburgh. He had initially been cited for driving over 100 mph in November, though the original charge was moved to a lesser charge at Tuesday's hearing.

Stop shaming NFL players for missing 'voluntary' OTAs

Stop shaming NFL players for missing 'voluntary' OTAs Voluntary organized team activities (OTAs) have commenced in the NFL. I include “voluntary” because the word seems to have lost its meaning with many football fans, as well with some in the media. You can’t go a day this time of year without reading a story about a star player skipping OTAs, followed by a sort of shaming from various corners of the football world. So far, Odell Beckham Jr. (Browns), Le’Veon Bell (Jets) and Antonio Brown (Raiders) have received the treatment. Talk to any beat writer, though, and they’ll tell you that “football in shorts” isn’t an activity from which teams draw significant conclusions — or any conclusions.

According to court documents, he is now guilty for driving at a safe speed and will be required to pay a fine.

Brown was also involved in a domestic dispute in Florida in mid-January, police say, though no charges were filed and he has since filed for custody of his daughter in the wake of the alleged incident.

Scott Brown addresses behaviour in Rangers clash.
Scott Brown has spoken in detail regarding his behaviour in March’s clash against Rangers, admitting he didn’t think he done anything wrong. The Hoops midfielder was at the centre of a dramatic clash, which included the Celtic captain laughing at Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos following his fifth red card of the season. Neil Lennon’s side eventually won the heated fixture 2-1 thanks to a late James Forrest strike, and at the full-time whistle, Brown was again at the heart of the controversy.
