Antonio Brown has a message for Steelers fans about the city’s starting quarterback.
About 24 hours after he stormed offf the field as a know former member of the Tampa Bay Bucs, the former Steelers wide receiver shared his thoughts on Ben Roethlisberger possibly playing his last game at Heinz Field on Monday night.
Brown strongly believes Roethlisberger will be playing football next season.
“I know you’re sad about Ben Roethlisberger retiring but it’s not over for Ben yet,” Brown said. “I know everyone is wondering about if this is his last game in Pittsburgh tonight and would it end like this but it may not end like this. I know Ben, he’s a competitor and he loves to play football. He’s one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time and I just don’t see him hanging it up.”
It was a positive message and bold prediction from Brown, who played nine seasons with Roethlisberger and caught 74 touchdowns from the signal-caller. It’s a big change from how he felt about him back in 2019, when he called him a loser.
Earlier that year, Brown told Roethlisberger to “shut up” and said he and the Steelers QB were “never friends.”
Over the course of their nine seasons together, the two combined for 804 catches, 10,768 yards and 78 touchdowns, according to StatsMuse.
