Holt tells Ben to be careful
 
http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05132/503607.stm

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger -- who was chided recently by coach Bill Cowher for riding a motorcycle without a helmet -- said he and his agent reviewed everything forbidden by his contract as soon as he entered the league.

Roethlisberger said today he doesn't consider himself to be a risk-taker.

"I don't do the crazy things that they say you can't do," Roethlisberger said. "I'm getting a chance to live my life and do the things I want to do. I know there'll be plenty of time for me to do crazy things like skydive and stuff like that when I get older."

Still, St. Louis receiver Torry Holt said he took Roethlisberger aside yesterday and reiterated the need for caution when taking any undue risk.

"He understands. It's an unfortunate situation with Kellen and I hope he can learn something from this, that we all can learn something from this," Holt said. "I don't know if all agents have gone through (forbidden contract items) with their clients. I think they will now."

Cincinnati quarterback Carson Palmer was a Heisman Trophy winner at Southern California, the No. 1 pick in the 2003 draft, and received a contract with more than $14 million in bonus money alone.

With that, he said, comes a certain amount of responsibility. So things like skiing and certain water sports will wait until his playing days are done.

"I'd love to do a lot of that stuff, but it's just not worth it," Palmer said. "The organization's invested too much in me and I owe it to them to take care of my body in the offseason, not do risky things like that

I always thought Torry Holt was a class act kind of guy. Straight production without the attitude. Good on him for looking out for our youngster. When are we signing him....? I would take torry holt over any other teams receiver in the league.
