Shortly after Pittsburgh Steelers rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett finished making his NFL debut, he went and texted legendary QB Ben Roethlisberger.
Pickett texted Big Ben, and the legendary is now speaking out about it.
Roethlisberger was discussing this text exchange on the latest episode of his new podcast titled “Footbahlin with Ben Roethlisberger.” Pickett brought up the interceptions he threw on the field and Big Ben told him that it’s nothing to worry about.
“It energized the defense, the fans, the offense. Minkah (Fitzpatrick) gets a pick and then (Pickett) throws an interception on his first pass in the NFL,” Roethlisberger said.
