There are some stories which feel more fabricated than real. While Ben Roethlisberger’s comments regarding the Pittsburgh Steelers selection of Mason Rudolph in the 2018 NFL Draft were a bit off, they likely didn’t require the media attention it garnered over the past week.

When Rudolph reported to rookie minicamp Friday, he had to know the cameras and reporters would be waiting to ask him about Roethlisberger’s comments. What fans found out was Roethlisberger reached out to Rudolph prior to minicamp, and wished him luck.

Finally! Steeler Nation can finally get some sleep knowing Roethlisberger reached out to Rudolph. While this story will now move its way to the backburner, it will likely be dug up when Roethlisberger reports to spring workouts in just a few weeks.

Time to check in on some other news and nuggets coming from the Steelers after Day 1 of rookie minicamp.
