Steelers’ Mason Rudolph Responds to Ben Roethlisberger’s Apparent Dig At Him

The Steelers selected Oklahoma State signal-caller Mason Rudolph in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft despite starter Ben Roethlisberger committing to playing another three-to-five years, health permitting.
Rudolph had said on draft day that it wasn’t up to Roethlisberger to teach him, and that it essentially was up to him to pave his own path through the NFL.

“If he asks me a question, I might just have to point to the playbook.” Not exactly mincing words.
“If I was Ben, I’d probably say the same thing,” Rudolph said, via ESPN.
“He’s a competitor.
Obviously, he has a lot of confidence in himself, like I do.
And, yeah, he’s going to be a future Hall of Famer, and I would expect him to say that.
Whenever my time comes, to be ready and take advantage of it.” Well handled.
This season certainly will be an interesting one for the Steelers, and we’ll have to wait and see if any tension presents itself between the two QBs.
