As Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger ways what very likely will be the past calendar year of his career, he’s using a distinct solution.

Roethlisberger is focusing more than at any time on his wellbeing and conditioning.

“Ben camp states most significant issue is bodyweight reduction,” Ryan Burr documented on Twitter. “He has been so pushed due to the fact [the] season ended. Supply claims his diet is stricter than [Tom] Brady.” (Maybe it is as rigid. It is tougher to visualize it remaining even stricter than the TB12 approach.)

Roethlisberger’s camp also suggests he’s in the “most effective condition of his everyday living” (99 % of the players in the league will say that in mid-July), and that Roethlisberger “hears anything.”

If he actually hears every thing, he has not carried out substantially about it in past yrs. Roethlisberger admitted a couple of many years in the past to Simms that the quarterback does not toss a lot of footballs in the offseason. Considerably less than two months afterwards, Roethlisberger’s year ended with an elbow injury.

Last calendar year, stories routinely surfaced concerning a difficulty with his knees, even even though he never ever appeared on the harm report with a knee trouble. He has carried plenty of bodyweight for plenty of snaps about a good deal of games throughout loads of seasons. Dropping pounds will put his joints beneath significantly less tension in 2022.

Even now, there is a opportunity that, at the age of 39, his human body will get started (or continue) breaking down. He’s seemingly decided to test to convert back again the clock.

“Ben will never ever point out the beating he has taken in the media but says from a commitment standpoint has hardly ever noticed anything at all from Ben shut to this in [the] past,” Burr tweeted. “Source claims [he’s] obsessed with food plan & exercises.”

It could be much too late for Ben to flip a new offseason leaf.  With so substantially turnover on the offensive line, he’ll have to have to be more nimble than he’s been. At some place, he’ll get strike. Presented all the hits he’s taken considering the fact that 2004, there’s always a probability that the following strike will be the past a person of his occupation.
