Ceremonially delivering the Lombardi Trophy to Atlanta on Saturday, Jerome Bettis smiled from ear to ear at the opportunity.
Then he became the latest NFL Hall of Famer to weigh in on the Antonio Brown situation.
A former Steelers great himself, "The Bus" said it was a disappointment to see the situation play out.
In past days, NFL Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens have spoken out regarding Brown and mostly about how A.B. would fit in playing for San Francisco and that Brown's days in Pittsburgh were likely done.
Bettis, though, seemed more disappointed than anything that the saga had transpired. He was in town, white gloves and all, to deliver the Super Bowl trophy, but afterward in a media scrum was asked about the Brown-Steelers drama.
"It's disappointing because I know how great Antonio Brown is, I know how much he loves the city of Pittsburgh and I do know how much he appreciates that organization," said Bettis, whose decorated career began with three seasons playing for the Rams and came to a close with the Steelers.
