Ben Roethlisberger is not happy about Martavis Bryant’s year-long suspension.
The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback is not only upset about missing the dynamic wide receiver on the field, but disappointed about Bryant not being completely honest about the circumstances surrounding his suspension.
Big Ben said he hasn’t talked to his maligned receiver recently and called out Bryant for not responding overtures.
“I kind of put it on his plate. I would love to talk to him, but I have to let him make the move, he needs to reach out to me because I’ve tried and done those things,” Roethlisberger said. “I’m not trying to be rude or mean, but I think he needs to do that, like grow up and reach out and talk to me, anybody. I know he talks to Markus (Wheaton).”
