Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger turns 33 in March but he is still playing at a high level, and general manager Kevin Colbert said he has never seen the Steelers’ franchise quarterback look better.
“I think he’s had as good a spring as I’ve ever seen him have,” Colbert told ESPN.com on Monday. “I think he’s continued to move that into training camp and right now he’s getting acclimated to the young guys we have at wide receiver and at running back.”
Roethlisberger has been nothing if not engaged when working with the wide receivers, and he has coached them during training camp as much as he has thrown to them.
Ben is ranked 16th and makes for a real nice QB2 with a chance to start him in certain matchups, especially if you wait at the position and address other needs. The Steelers are supposed to use a no-huddle offense this year and WR Markus Wheaton appears to be a break-out candidate.
