So much for Ben Roethlisberger being in the best shape of his life

The Steelers are arriving for the beginning of Training Camp Wednesday morning and the team is posting photos as players arrive, seems pretty harmless right? Think again.

A photo of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger reporting to the UMPC Rooney Sports Complex has the internet speculating, once again, about the kind of shape he is in.

Last week, it was reported that Roethlisberger was in the best shape of his career.

The report came from Ryan Burr to says he talked to someone within Roethlisberger’s camp.

Burr says that Ben’s camp tells him the QB has been focused on weight loss since the end of the season and that “his diet is stricter than (Tom) Brady.”

Walking in an olive green shirt that says “different”, the lay of the shirt makes it appear Big Ben may not be in the best shape of his career.

Of course one photo doesn’t tell the story of one’s offseason workout habits, but that won’t stop the speculating.

Some comments on Twitter were not especially positive.
