Antonio Brown: Didn't realize 'how good I had it' with Big Ben

Antonio Brown's apology tour continued Wednesday morning with an Instagram post directed at quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Brooke Pryor of ESPN reports.

The former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver posted a photo of Roethlisberger smiling and slapping the back of Brown's helmet when the two played together, along with a caption that praised Roethlisberger.

"Mostly you a little bit of me !" Brown wrote. "Yee yee !! I never realized how good I had it, got caught up in my emotion with everyone coming after me I really apologize for my actions sincerely man ! It's never been another connection like what we done in the past decade. I appreciate you. Sincerely AB."

The apology and gratitude from Brown is a significant change in tone from previous social media posts directed at Roethlisberger. The pair's relationship deteriorated throughout Brown's final season with the Steelers in 2018.

Roethlisberger called Brown out on his weekly radio show following a loss to the Denver Broncos for running a bad route. After the season, Brown said Roethlisberger had an "owner mentality" in a February 2019 tweet responding to a fan asking what caused the conflict between them.

"No conflict just a matter of respect! Mutual respect! He has a owner mentality like he can call out anybody including coaches," Brown wrote. "Players know but they can't say anything about it otherwise they meal ticket gone. It's a dirty game within a game."

In August, Brown sent another tweet telling Roethlisberger to "shut up already," after the quarterback said in an interview he regretted calling Brown out for the poor route and that it ruined a friendship.
