Pittsburgh All-Professional defensive sort out Cam Heyward then defined on his “Not Simply Soccer” podcast final week that Ogunjobi “was very open and upfront about” what occurred practically three complete years in the past.
Ogunjobi spoke with media members on Tuesday and, predictably, was requested about his relationship with Rudolph.
“He reached out once I signed,” Ogunjobi remarked in regards to the signal-caller, per Noah Strackbein of FanNation’s All Steelers. “That is simply water underneath the bridge. That was years in the past. I haven’t got any exhausting emotions, I do not assume he has any exhausting emotions. I really feel as males on this sport, I really feel like typically we act out of emotion. I used to be defending my teammate. We reached out, we talked to one another. That was over the day it occurred, for me at the very least.”
Ogunjobi is predicted to be a major contributor for Pittsburgh’s cross rush, whereas Rudolph will possible spend the subsequent month competing to both keep on the Pittsburgh roster or earn a commerce to a group in want of a quarterback.
