Default Roethlisberger to train in Pittsburgh during suspension

Roethlisberger to train in Pittsburgh during suspension
By Scott Brown, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW

Ben Roethlisberger intends to work out with quarterbacks coach George Whitfield Jr. in Pittsburgh while he is suspended and possibly do some coaching at the high school level.

Roethlisberger revealed some of his plans for at least the first month of the NFL season to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review in a one-on-one interview today.

Roethlisberger will meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell Friday in New York about the six-game suspension he received in April for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Goodell could reduce the suspension to four games because of good behavior.

"I don't know if it's going to be a discussion, it's going to be a question and answer or (Goodell) just does all of the talking," Roethlisberger said. "I think there are probably a lot of things I could tell him but I want to make sure that we have the right answers and the truth and the things we think will be beneficial."

In addition to bringing in the California-based Whitfield the two have worked together during past offseasons Roethlisberger said he will train with wide receivers that have been cut by NFL teams and want to stay in football shape.

"I am going to be doing a lot of drills, a lot of drops," Roethlisberger said. "I will do everything humanly possible that I can do to stay as sharp as I can with the things I am allowed to do."

He said he may also use the time away from the Steelers to be a volunteer coach at a local high school.

Roethlisberger has only watched one Steelers game on TV. That came in 2005 when he couldn't travel to Green Bay with the team because he was recovering from knee surgery.

"I don't think (that) was as hard as this will be," said Roethlisberger, adding that he will watch the games with his parents. "This is a different situation why I can't play. I will be so focused, taking mental reps on every single play."

In the interview with the Trib, Roethlisberger touched on a number of subjects, including suspicions of his motives for changing as well as why he is more at peace with himself.

On skepticism over the warm and fuzzy Ben that has been on display since the start of training camp, Roethlisberger said, "I've known from day one this is not going to be an overnight process. You're not going to win people back overnight. You're not going to win all of them back period. I wish I could but it's just not going to happen. But like I said my actions will speak volumes over the next days, weeks, months and years. I really believe that and I think people will (believe in his transformation), even the hard-headed ones that won't give me a chance. Over the years of seeing me and seeing that it's not just talk, more people will come around."

On why renewing his faith has made him a happier person, Roethlisberger said, "It's a calming feeling when the Lord runs your life. And it's something I've always known as a church person, but I've never really believed it. I think I've known it but never believed it. And now I know it, and it's a great thing."

I'll be outraged if Goodell doesn't reduce the suspension to 4 games.

That would be a perfect idea...or have Ben go up there, either way they'd both make out great on the situation. I doubt it would happen though.

I figured he would head back to Ohio and train at Miami U. I like the idea of training with cut pros better. The skill level of those recievers is going to be better than college players.

It could have been Florida. They have that camp down there (Leftwich and Brown were there this year).

It sounds good. It would be nice if it was with receivers who were cut from the Steelers so they could actually know the routes from the playbook (even though it would not be in their possession).
