Report: Antonio Brown had ‘ugly’ altercation with Ben Roethlisberger

Report: Antonio Brown had ‘ugly’ altercation with Ben Roethlisberger Details are trickling out about the situation surrounding Antonio Brown with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and it does not sound good. Brown missed practice on Wednesday, was listed on the injury report on Thursday and Friday due to his knee, and the Steelers continued to hint that his status for Sunday’s season finale against the Bengals was in question. Brown did not play in the game, and now we know why. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Brown did not attend the team’s meeting or walk-through on Saturday, so he was benched as punishment on Sunday. They also reported that he had a dispute with a teammate during the weekend.

There’s certainly a lot of blame to go around when looking at the dysfunction currently taking hold with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock over the past couple weeks, you know said dysfunction surrounds future Hall of Famers Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown.

The two got into it late in the season — leading to Brown being benched for Week 17. Since then, the star receiver has made it clear he wants to be dealt. For the Steelers part, it seems they are going to trade him this offseason.

In talking about the drama, current Denver Broncos wide receiver and former Pittsburgh Steelers teammate Emmanuel Sanders seems to blame both guys for what we’re seeing.

Report: Antonio Brown asks Steelers to trade him

Report: Antonio Brown asks Steelers to trade him Antonio Brown’s relationship with his quarterback and head coach in Pittsburgh is clearly in a bad place, and the star wide receiver is reportedly looking to move on from the Steelers this offseason. 

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger escapes pressure from the Browns and heaves a deep touchdown pass to wide receiver Antonio Brown in Week

Benjamin Todd Roethlisberger Sr. (/ˈrɒθlɪsbɜːrɡər/; born March 2, 1982), nicknamed Big Ben , is an American football quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League (NFL).

Here, Sanders criticizes Brown for going AWOL ahead of an important Week 17 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. It’s well worth watching from someone who starred for Pittsburgh from 2010-13.

Not to be outdone, Sanders also put Big Ben on absolute blast — calling him a “bad leader” while saying the quarterback has been “disrespectful.”

As someone who was in the Steelers’ locker room with both men, Sanders is a voice of authority here.

As it pertains to Roethlisberger, there’s been multiple examples of him publicly calling out teammates. That includes both Brown and rookie receiver James Washington.

At this point, it seems unrealistic to believe the two can coexist moving forward. And with Brown likely to garner a ton of interest on the trade block, look for him to be moved in short order. Sanders’ comments only play into this narrative.
