Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Rothlisberger has called out former Clemson wide receiver Martavis Bryant to "toughen up" and "get tough, and you've got to make tough plays and you've got to make tough catches" during his weekly radio show with 93.7 The Fan.
Bryant did not sulk but is ready for the challenge on Saturday night against the AFC North champion Bengals in the wild-card round of the playoffs.
"I'm happy he issued out the challenge," Bryant said via espn.com. "I accept it."
"If he feels you need to step up your game, it's his job to call you out," Bryant said of his quarterback. "I'm happy he did it. It woke me up. I'm ready to work ... He wants to see me be great."
Bryant has 48 catches for 759 yards and seven touchdowns on the season. In two seasons, he has 76 catches for 1,314 yards and 14 scores.
