Once on opposite teams and on opposite ends of a 2019 brawl, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph immediately reached out to Larry Ogunjobi this offseason after the former Cleveland Browns defensive tackle signed a one-year deal to become his new teammate.

"It's just water under the bridge," Ogunjobi said Tuesday as he reported to training camp with the Steelers. "That was years ago. No hard feelings. I don't think he has any hard feelings. It's just men in a sport. Sometimes we act out of emotions, and I was defending my teammate. He was doing his thing.

"I feel like it is what it is. He reached out, we talked to each other. It was over the day it happened. To me, at least, the only way I can move is forward."

Ogunjobi, 28, was suspended one game for his role in the 2019 melee between Myles Garrett and Rudolph. The quarterback attempted to remove Garrett's helmet in the aftermath of a hard hit, and Garrett swung Rudolph's own helmet at him in the final seconds of a Thursday night game at FirstEnergy Stadium. The NFL determined that Ogunjobi shoved Rudolph to the ground.

Ogunjobi also was fined $10,000, which was rescinded on appeal.
