It’s early February, but it appears as though Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and wide receivers Markus Wheaton and Derek Moye are hard at it out in southern California.
According to a Tuesday tweet by Sam Nestler on Twitter, the three Steelers players, along with several draft hopefuls, had a field session with P.J. Nestler, the Sports Performance Director for Velocity Sports Performance in Irvine California.
We don’t know how long Roethlisberger and the young receivers have been out there, but it really doesn’t matter. It’s just good to see the Steelers quarterback getting some early offseason work in with his teammates. In addition, it’s a good sign that Roethlisberger is healthy.
According to an old post on the Velocity website, Roethlisberger trained at their center prior to him being drafted by the Steelers.
