U.S. Bank Stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings, is an indoor venue aimed at keeping out Minneapolis’ frigid winters. However, the arena also has ways to connect with the great outdoors on warm days. Massive bay doors can be opened up to allow breezes to flood the stadium and provide a little taste of Minnesota’s nicest days on the field.
Roethlisberger said Tuesday on 93.7 The Fan that Bryant has not asked for a trade based on their talks together. On Sunday, however, ESPN confirmed a report by NFL Network that Bryant had requested a trade recently.
“There haven’t been any inklings of unhappiness,” Roethlisberger said during his weekly radio appearance.
Addressing the media Tuesday at the Steelers facility, Tomlin said he had no reaction to the storyline, which is a “nonissue to us.”
Tomlin was asked what Bryant has told him about his role in the offense. Tomlin said Bryant hasn’t detailed a desired role.
He was the league-leader in punt return yards and 10th in kick return yards. He was tied for the league lead with two kick or punt return touchdowns. His 143 punt return yards in week 2 was his 2nd most ever. His 219 kick return yards in week 4 was his 2nd most ever.
He was also, allegedly, a wide receiver. After playing corner his rookie year, Hester switched to offense over the summer. But to that point, he’d had one pass thrown his way, without a catch.
This year the turnover ratio is 0 through four games — and that includes unforced errors by backup quarterbacks — and the secondary has produced six interceptions.
