Roethlisberger Shows Up To Steelers OTAs In 'Much Better Shape'

Ben Roethlisberger is trying to demonstrate to Commissioner Roger Goodell that he's making the necessary changes in his off-the-field life to more accurately reflect the image the NFL is attempting to portray. Likewise, he's also making changes on-the-field.

According to Jim Wexell of Steel City Insider, Roethlisberger looks to be in "much better shape" than he was at the Steelers minicamp in April.

This is a good sign for Roethlisberger and the Steelers. Even if it's a small sign, it demonstrates that he's taking his return to the field seriously.

Wexell is also reporting that Roethlisberger was a "little rusty as expected" in passing drills.

Tuesday is the first of three consecutive days of OTAs for the Steelers.
