Ben Roethlisberger has been critical of Steelers teammate Martavis Bryant since the receiver was suspended for the entire 2016 season.
 
Bryant would like to clear up the issues with a face-to-face meeting with his quarterback when training camp opens later this month.
 
"I feel like we need to," Bryant told ESPN's Dan Graziano. "We should have a man-to-man. Because some of the things he put out there about me, I kind of didn't agree with how he did it. So I want to sit down and hear his own opinion, man-to-man, about why he did that."
Upon Bryant's suspension last season, Big Ben said the receiver needed to "grow up" and reach out to talk to him about the situation. Roethlisberger added that Bryant lied to him and "that bitch let down" the team. The quarterback added this May that his receiver must "win back everyone's trust."
 
Bryant wants to have that talk now.
 
"I mean, at that time, I was going through a lot of stuff. I wasn't really even worried about his opinion at that time, because there was just a lot that was going on," Bryant said Thursday. "He's my brother. I love him. But at the same time, I ain't no bitch. I have my own problems. I'm not just going to come up to you and open up to you about what's going on with my personal life. That's not how I am. We just didn't see eye-to-eye on that, but as far as right now, everything's great."
 
Added Bryant:
 
"We haven't had that sit-down talk yet. Hopefully we'll have it before the season starts. If not, that's fine.

I love this story

Why did you post this here?
 
If Ben hadn't been lucky and wealthy, he might have had to win back the team's trust after missing a season or two sitting in prison.

I'm hoping this becomes a distraction for the Steelers. I hate the Steelers

The betting public's percentage of the Dolphins apparently wasn't impacted dramatically by Miami's 10-6 playoff season. That's surprising, not only because most key players return from that team, but also because the roster has been bolstered by Julius Thomas (pictured above), Lawrence Timmons and others.
 
Three weeks ago, the MGM Grand and 11 other Nevada casinos set the Dolphins' over/under for wins at eight.
 
But according to the MGM's sports book chief, so many people bet the Dolphins would win fewer than eight that Miami's over/under was reduced to 7½.
 
And even now, more money is coming in on the under.
 
A bunch of teams that didn't make the playoffs last season have higher over/unders, including Tennessee at 9½, Arizona and Denver and the Colts at 8½ and Detroit at 8.

Good news for Dolphins fans living outside South Florida: Not only will every Dolphins preseason game will be televised on NFL Network, but the most important one (the third at Philadelphia) will be televised live nationally on NFL Net at 7 p.m. Aug. 24. The others will be on tape delay on NFL Net.

> So here's a surprise… the Patriot-loving Peter King anointed the Dolphins with a #12 ranking in his pre-season list. That's amazing, considering how much of a homer King is regarding the Pats (#1 of course). Here's what Peter had to say about his #12 ranking of the dark horse Dolphins

> I don't know, Euph. Where would *you* place the Patriots in the rankings?
 
I don't disagree with the Patriots being ranked #1. King is simply not an objective reporter with regards to the Patriots and all things Brady.
 
> How about the dolphins?
 
Not at #12. King's list has them above the Broncos (13th and even the Cardinals (15th). Even if Miami proves to be a better team than either of those two, they may well end with a worse record. If we are ignoring the subjective BS and talking strictly W/L records, I don't see Miami as being ahead of either of those two teams... you can argue about most every team on his list if you wish.

I only used his words as a rah-rah item for the start of camp. One sentence he got absolutely right: (The Dolphins) Won't get past the wild-card unless Tannehill excels.
