The relationship between Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown deteriorated at an alarming rate last season, leading to Brown wanting out of Pittsburgh by the end of the year.

Both parties have spoken about the divide between them in recent months. Roethlisberger addressed it again in an interview with NBC Sports' Michele Tafoya.

Big Ben admitted that he regrets calling out Brown publicly and blaming him for an interception at the end of last season's loss to the Denver Broncos.

“I wish I wouldn’t have done it,” Roethlisberger said. “Obviously, we saw what happened. It ruined a friendship. I just got caught up in the emotion and heat of the battle.”

Roethlisberger has addressed this particular incident before, apologizing for it back in May. Brown wasn't having any of it then, tweeting the message "Two face" after the QB's comments went public.

Brown is now in Oakland, and with his helmet saga seemingly in the past, we'll get a chance to see him work with a new quarterback.
