Although Kelvin Beachum missed the Steelers' wild-card win over the Bengals, that hasn't stopped him from trash talking their AFC North rivals.
"I describe it like this: You have a red-head stepchild, and you know, it’s usually the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Baltimore Ravens and then the Cincinnati Bengals,” the Steelers offensive tackle told NESN.com’s Michaela Vernava on Tuesday on Super Bowl Radio Row. “And, you know, they wanted to come up, and we have to make sure they stayed in their place. … They got a little further, a little besides themselves, and we had to put them back in their place.”
He also praised Ben Roethlisberger for his resiliency, after fighting through multiple injuries during the season and playoffs.
“We follow that type of toughness and that type of competitiveness that he has,” Beachum said. “He’s going to find a way to get out on the field whatever way he can, and when he’s out there on the field, we’re at our best. It’s the reason why we pay him $100 million. He’s a great quarterback, and he does a great job of putting us in a great position to score and to win games.”
The Steelers appear to have tamed the Bengals Steelers' fans!
