Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall says QB Ben Roethlisberger is racist

Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall accused the team's current quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of being racist while supporting ex-teammate Antonio Brown on Twitter this week. On Thursday, Mendenhall, who played for the team between 2008 and 2012, took some time to defend wide receiver Antonio Brown, whose rift with the Steelers quickly became public and led to his eventual trade to the Oakland Raiders in March. In a series of posts, Mendenhall expressed sympathy for Brown, tweeting, "I know he seems outta pocket right now, but I seriously feel for [Brown]."
