Ben Roethlisberger spoke to members of the media following the Steelers practice on Thursday afternoon. He didn't reveal anything new but said he was focusing on a new chapter in his life.
"I've put a lot of thought into my life, decisions that I've made in the past that I've been sitting at home thinking about things. I've been working closely with the commissioner on ways to make changes, corrections. So, I'm looking forward to the second chance and a second opportunity, not just in football because I think everyone knows what you're going to get in football, but in life. I think that's what's kind of more important."
He said those changes he's been talking to the Commissioner about are "personal things" and that this is an opportunity to re-evaluate his life as a whole.
"That's me ... evaluating what I need to do and be smarter when it comes to certain things. Like I said it's a new chapter and I'm looking forward to it and it starts with football. I'm glad to be back here ... I'll be talking to you guys a lot more."
"Yeah, it's been great to read and hear from those guys, not just text messages and calls they send to me but to read the things in the media they said. So I say it's great to be out here with my brothers because they really are family to me."
