Bryant is back with the Pittsburgh Steelers this season and feels that Roethlisberger’s comments need to be addressed personally.
“I feel like we need to,” Bryant told ESPN’s Dan Graziano on Thursday. “We should have a man-to-man. Because some of the things he put out there about me, I kind of didn’t agree with how he did it. So I want to sit down and hear his own opinion, man to man, about why he did that.”
Bryant was coming off a 765-yard, six-touchdown performance through the 11 games he played in 2015 and appeared to be an integral part of Pittsburgh’s 2016 offense. Roethlisberger was frustrated that Bryant wouldn’t be available to the team, and the receiver had other things on his mind at the time, but has found himself unhappy with his quarterbacks comments.
“I mean, at that time, I was going through a lot of stuff,” said Bryant. “I wasn’t really even worried about his opinion at that time, because there was just a lot that was going on.
“He’s my brother. I love him. But at the same time, I have my own family outside of football. I have my own problems. I’m not just going to come up to you and open up to you about what’s going on with my personal life. That’s not how I am. We just didn’t see eye to eye on that, but as far as right now, everything’s great.”
