Ramon Foster is tired of all the social media drama surrounding the Steelers.
The veteran guard issued a lengthy “PSA” statement Thursday on Twitter, calling for former Pittsburgh players to stop constantly criticizing his current teammates.
“Moving forward…any former player or affiliate of the Steelers who has an issue with anyone still in the locker room, please contact me or Maurkice Pouncey or anyone else you feel you can talk to,” Foster wrote. “Whoever you have an issue with, we will get you their number so you can address them. I PROMISE. These media takes might give y’all good traffic on your social media outlets but the guys still in that locker room, who y’all still know personally have to answer for those comments. Call them what you want, but call them personally and tell THEM. Defend who you want to defend but you don’t have to mention the team at all.
“Whether you have a ring or played for one year…ENOUGH…CHILL. Most players at one point in their life want to take their kids back to the place where they once played, don’t burn too many bridges. It’s a long history of brotherhood more than anything, BUSINESS is one thing but let’s keep it at a minimum for the guys who have to answer for these comments moving forward.”
Foster’s comments come a few hours after former Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall called quarterback Ben Roethlisberger a “racist” before backtracking his remarks later in the day.
Alright, I’ll end the mystery… B’s racist and @AB84’s black. He had to catch balls from a racist quarterback. Every honest player knows it, it’s not a big deal. He was just supposed to take his lickings and move on, like a slave for real. https://t.co/ubI39UDauY

Pittsburgh wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is another player who got caught up in Twitter drama. Antonio Brown, now with the Raiders, replied to a post from a fan that reminded Brown that his former teammate was named Steelers’ Most Valuable Player for the 2018 season. Brown wrote Sunday, in part: “Emotion: boy fumbled the whole post season in the biggest game of year ! Everyone went blind to busy making guys famous not enough reality these days! by the way check the list.”

The social media jabs comes after the Steelers finished the 2018 season with a 9-6-1 record and faced drama throughout the year.
