You would think that based on the way Antonio Brown essentially forced his way out of Pittsburgh that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wouldn't have one good thing to say about his former star wideout.
According to Andrew Fillipponi of Pittsburgh's 93.7 The Fan, Roethlisberger apologized in an exclusive interview with Bob Pompeani of the Pittsburgh CBS affiliate.
"I have a few times - sent him some messages, called him - I haven't heard back", Roethlisberger said. On Monday, Roethlisberger appeared to make the first move toward resolution, saying he was "genuinely sorry" for the way he talked about Brown in the media and how things turned out between them. The Steelers quarterback offered a belated apology to Brown for calling him out publicly following a late interception in a loss to the Broncos.
Pittsburgh relented in March, sending him to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a pair of mid-round draft picks.

In the same interview, the quarterback said he probably went too far in his radio show comments regarding Brown. As soon as you say "Sorry" it only goes so far. "So you have to do your best to try and realize what it takes for each guy to develop the best relationship that you can", Roethlisberger said.
The reality is that Roethlisberger being so public with an apology was not expected. "You can't take it back, and I wish I could because if that's what ruined our friendship and relationship, I am truly, genuinely sorry about that". Those guys gave me a chance when I was a 21-year-old kid. You're right, there [were] some great things and then all of a sudden it just kind of, it disappeared, and I'm not really sure where it went.
"I really am looking forward to reconnecting with him, talking", Roethlisberger told the station. We didn't make the playoffs, and so I need to, as a leader of that football team, because leadership ultimately is about winning football games - and I didn't do a good enough job of being a leader because we didn't make the playoffs.
