Dejan Kovacevic of the Tribune-Review posted film of the reaction of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger when asked about rumors that surfaced Sunday, indicating he was going to request a trade this offseason.
Roethlisberger's reaction, much like the team's reaction via a statement posted earlier Sunday, doesn't mince words.
"When it comes to wanting to go somewhere else, it's unacceptable. I don't know where that came from, but it's one of the most B.S. stories I've ever heard of."
He continued on saying he's happy and "loves it" in Pittsburgh. He noted as well, "this is family, this is where I want to be."
NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport reported the story Sunday, and Roethlisberger and his agent, Ryan Tollner, have denied the report.
