From Nick Farabaugh,

Kenny Pickett came to the Steelers from right across the hallway at Pitt, where he played next door to Ben Roethlisberger, and while they may only have a passing connection, Roethlisberger wants to pay it forward, and said he’s willing to offer the young quarterback advice as he makes his transition to the NFL.

Pickett said the now-retired former franchise quarterback of the Steelers reached out to offer advice whenever he wanted. Not only that, but Roethlisberger made sure to let Pickett know that his number is open anytime for Pickett to call and ask for counsel.

“Ben called me up recently and that was awesome. It’s a really special thing. He said he is always there for me if I have any questions or advice. He is an unbelievable player, a Hall of Famer. He is a guy who I will definitely use as a resource these coming weeks.” — Kenny Pickett.
