Thanks to a fantastic idea from a reader, we have a new series here at BTSC. There are 90 days until the Pittsburgh Steelers season starts in September. There are also 90 players on the Steelers offseason roster, so why not give an overview of a player a day? These overviews will give you a sense of who each player is, there chance of making the team, and what they could bring to the Steelers. Let's dive in...

Player: Ben Roethlisberger

Position: QB

School: Miami (OH)

Overview: Ben Roethlisberger is the Steelers franchise quarterback and is still in his prime. Gone are the days of Roethlisberger running around like a mad man and launching the ball down the field. Don't get me wrong, Roethlisberger can still do that if the play breaks down but that's no longer part of the Steelers game plan. Under Todd Haley Roethlisberger has typically gotten the ball out faster and thus limited the damage he takes. Roethlisberger has taken his fair share of shots over they yeas and sooner or later that's going to catch up to him, but all reports seem to indicate Ben is ready to go and fans should see another great year from number seven in 2016
