Ben Joins Team for Sprints....

Big Ben joined his teamates for windsprints today, the opening day of 2006 training camp.  Roeth ran 14 40s and apparently looked perfectly comfortable.  

"I felt good," he said. "I wasn't really sure how I was going to feel. A lot of guys said, 'Are you really going to run? You don't have anything to prove.' But it was important for me to show the guys and coaches that I'm going to go out here and give my all."
I love how Ben doesn't expect preferential treatment of any sort.  He's a natural leader. So far so good for Ben and the Steelers.
