The 2019 NFL season sits just over a week away, but action on the field is the last thing anyone is talking about.

Star running backs Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon are in the midst of contract disputes. Jadeveon Clowney is reportedly interested in being traded to another team and that's just the beginning.

Perhaps the loudest voice this off-season has been Antonio Brown's. After being traded to the Oakland Raiders, Brown suffered frostbitten feet and argued with the NFL to let him wear a helmet that had been banned to keep players safe.

Now he's calling out former teammates.

Earlier this week, an interview between Ben Roethlisberger and Michele Tafoya aired. In the interview, Roethlisberger said he wishes he never called out Brown during the 2018 season because it "ruined a friendship."

Brown doesn't agree. He says they were never friends.

"Never friends just had to get my ends.......shut up already," he said on Twitter.

The relationship between Brown and Roethlisberger went from being one of the best in the league to volatile in just a few weeks at the end of the 2018 season.

Clearly Brown wasn't fond of his former quarterback's comments. He'll get a fresh start with the Raiders, though trouble brewed in his first few weeks with the team.
