Everyone is giving Antonio Brown a hard time because the way his NFL career ended, but the former star Pittsburgh Steelers football player says his career would never have started if it wasn’t for Big Ben.

Brown made a surprising admission about his relationship with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. During an appearance on “The Pivot Podcast,” Brown took a moment to praise his former quarterback. The seven-time Pro Bowler credited Roethlisberger with jumpstarting his professional career.

He said:

“Ben Roethlisberger the only reason I even started starting for the Steelers. Literally he had to go tell (then-offensive coordinator) Bruce Arians like yo I need AB at the X. Let me have him run these plays,” the former Steelers WR said.

This is wild considering that Bruce Arians was the offensive coordinator at the time when AB was on the Steelers. The Steelers should be glad they listened to Big Ben because when Antonio Brown was playing he was pretty damn unstoppable. This is a cool story, glad AB shared it.
