PITTSBURGH — George Pickens is frustrated with everyone, including the media, who he views as stoking the flames to make his frustrations more than what they are, and that included his effort on a Jaylen Warren run that could have ended up as a touchdown if Pickens had blocked Colts cornerback Jaylon Jones.

On Tuesday, he addressed those ideas, including what he believes the media is overlooking and where they are wrong. Namely, due to the fact that media members have not played in the NFL, Pickens brushes aside their concerns.

“I just feel like the reason I would be like you’re saying, would be still fighting it,” Pickens said. “A lot of guys that’s not playing the ball, not playing the game of football. That’s just media guys having an opinion.”
