Ben Roethlisberger Called Donte Moncrief After Signing (Like A Terrible Leader Does)

Donte Moncrief said one of the first people to reach out to him after becoming a Pittsburgh Steeler was the man who will be throwing him the football in 2019: quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

At his initial press conference with the media, Moncrief said he got the call from Big Ben while at the team doctors getting his physical.

“I talked to Ben earlier, probably like time I made it, he texts me, he called me first and I couldn’t answer because I was in the doctor office,” he told reporters. “And then he text me and it was exciting to get a message from Ben Roethlisberger, the quarterback and like you said, just ready to get going really to get some chemistry and lock in on the plays and getting ready.
