Rookie Washington Says Saturday Talk With Roethlisberger Is One He Really Needed

Even though Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger publicly chided rookie wide receiver James Washington a few days after his poor showing in the team’s Week 13 road loss to the Denver Broncos, he’s since let this year’s second-round draft pick know that he still has trust in him.

While Washington was ultimately inactive this past Sunday for the team’s night home loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, Roethlisbegger made it known during his weekly Tuesday interview on 93.7 The Fan that he had had a good talk with Washington this past Saturday.
