Antonio Brown, Ben Roethlisberger. -- MATT SUNDAY / DKPS

Ben Roethlisberger sat down with NBC Sports' Michele Tafoya for an interview that aired during halftime of Sunday night's preseason game against the Titans.

Roethlisberger touched on a few subjects, including his relationship with Mike Tomlin, the death of Darryl Drake, and his attitude heading into his 16th NFL season.

Tafoya also asked Roethlisberger about Antonio Brown, and Roethlisberger expressed regret towards the way he publicly called out Brown's play last November after a loss to the Broncos.

“I wish I wouldn’t have done it,” said Roethlisberger. “Obviously we saw what happened, and obviously it ruined a friendship. I just got caught up in emotion in the heat of the battle.”

Roethlisberger noted that he publicly called out James Washington's play in the same game, but Washington thanked him for the challenge. When asked why Brown didn't respond to the criticism the same way, Roethlisberger said, "You'll have to ask him. I'm not sure."

Roethlisberger said that his wish for Brown moving forward is that he has a "good, healthy season."
