Rashard Mendenhall Can't Decide If Ben Roethlisberger Is Racist Or Not

Although ex Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall later made a cut and backpedaled his casualness in slinging around the most polarizing accusation there is shows we have reached peak crazy in the controversies swirling around Roethlisberger and the S

Just when you thought the Pittsburgh Steelers' offseason couldn't get any more crazier, it has.

"Moving forward.any former player or affiliate of the Steelers who has an issue with anyone still in the locker room, please contact me or Maurkice Pouncey or anyone else you feel you can talk to", Foster wrote.

Brown pinned Pittsburgh's failure to make the playoffs this season on his former teammate's fumble against the New Orleans Saints, in a game which the Steelers lost 31-28.

Every time one of these former players speaks out in the media regarding something that happens with the current team, players such as Foster and Pouncey have to answer for it to the media.

"Call them what you want, but call them personally and tell THEM.Defend who you want to defend but you don't have to mention the team at all". In that same tweet, Brown cited Roethlisberger calling out both players and coaches, as he has done via his weekly radio show regularly for the past several years.

LA intersection to be named after slain rapper
Nipsey Hussle's family and his partner, Lauren London , have spoken out about the rapper a week after his murder. There will be a public memorial service at STAPLES Center in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday, April 11, 2019.

Will those players heed Foster's advice? The 31-year-old, who now works as a writer and story editor for the HBO sports comedy Ballers, added every "honest player" was allegedly aware of Roethlisberger's approach and that Brown had every right to walk out, instead of "taking his lickings like a slave". We'll answer our favorites weekly until the draft. "He was just supposed to take his lickings and move on, like a slave for real".

The former running back, who played alongside the quarterback from 2008 to 2012, then retracted the statement in spectacular fashion a few hours later.

It's not entirely clear, and Mendenhall hasn't sent any follow-ups tweets or responded to any of the hundreds of comments under his initial charge of racism.

"Clearly it's no fun, when EVERYONE's the accused", tweeted Mendenhall.

Mendenhall started the conversation Wednesday by talking about what Antonio Brown must have faced not showing up to play in his last game for the Steelers.
