Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger rumored to have ended ties on a salty note

For the first time in nearly two decades, Steelers fans will have to contend with life without star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. The two-time Super Bowl winner bid adieu to the NFL playing his last game for the franchise against the Kansas City Chiefs.

And while the quarterback got a standing ovation from the crowd, not all might have gone down as well behind the scenes. According to league insider Gerry Dulac, it is safe to assume that the two parties did not end terms on a good note.

Great Steelers insider @gerrydulac reports that it's "very very safe to assume that" there's bad blood between Big Ben and the Steelers organization.What do you make of that?

While it is extremely unlikely that Roethlisberger will ever make a return to the sport, it will definitely leave a bad taste for the quarterback after serving the franchise for 18 seasons.


Police arrest Denver Broncos wideout Jerry Jeudy

The Denver Broncos may have traded for Russell Wilson, but the quarterback will have to wait before throwing to wide receiver Jerry Jeudy again after Araphoe County police arrested him yesterday on charge of second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer, which is classified as a misdemeanor.


The incident involved the mother of Jeudy's child. The NFL wideout has been accused of withholding his baby’s car seat and medical records, as well as the woman’s wallet. The wideout told police that he took the items because the woman had one of his phones and refused to return it.
