Antonio Brown says he is glad Big Ben called him out for pouting

Antonio Brown the Steelers star wide out went nuts last week after not getting the ball when he was wide open.  Brown was asked about his temper tantrum on the field and he apologized.  Brown also said he spoke to Roethlisberger to let the quarterback know how “grateful” he is to “the guy who’s given me every opportunity.”

“It’s not about me. It’s about the Steelers,” Brown said, via ESPN.com. “We all make mistakes as players. Sometimes I might miss a read. I don’t see Ben throwing me under the bus if I drop the ball or if I run the wrong route or didn’t get my depth. I don’t see him kicking the cooler. It’s no excuse for my behavior. I’m glad [Roethlisberger] did what he did. He called me out. As a general of our team, he has every right to call anything out. … I’m just grateful we have a great leader who’s forgiving and accommodating and willing to talk to me.”
