Former Steeler Rashard Mendenhall calls Ben Roethlisberger ‘racist,’ backpedals

first_imgFormer Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall took to defending Antonio Brown in a series of tweets Thursday before eventually labeling his ex-teammate Ben Roethlisberger a “racist.”DIAMOND: Antonio Brown has turned into the worst kind of player STEELERS MOCK DRAFT: Predicting picks, NFL Draft plan, sleepers for PittsburghHere are Mendenhall’s complete thoughts on Brown’s situation, via his Twitter feed:”I know he seems outta pocket right now, but I seriously feel for [Brown]. As a black athlete in this country, you can literally lay your body out and give your entire being for a higher cause, the greater good of a TEAM. And when you face the firing-squad, for something not entirely your own doing, depending on your position and skin-tone, the ‘team’ may very-well leave your ass out to dry. Think about what it would take to render [Brown], the GREATEST COMPETITOR of our generation, incapable of showing up to play in his last game.”To boil that down to [Brown] being a diva, selfish, quitter couldn’t possibly explain the MAN who for nearly a decade provided professional excellence to the city of Pittsburgh. By no stretch am I saying {Brown’s] been without guilt this off-season. I just hope to see more compassion and examination, for a guy who gave everything he had until he couldn’t bring himself to do it, for even one more game.”Mendenhall played a key role on the Steelers as the team’s starting running back for many years. He had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and even helped the team win a Super Bowl in 2009. In other words, he’s spent a lot of time with both Roethlisberger and Brown. About three hours after tweeting that, however, Mendenhall backpedaled on his comments.Mendenhall received a lot of backlash on Twitter for his initial tweet. After all, using the sentence “he had to catch balls from a racist quarterback” is a very strong thing to say. It’s not exactly the kind of statement you then retract within the same day. Either own it, or don’t tweet it at all.Mendenhall played with Roethlisberger from 2008 (when he joined the league as a rookie) through 2012. He also played with Brown from 2010 through 2012.last_img read more
