Ben took time during his football camp today to talk to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette‘s Ray Fittipaldo.

From the interview:

When asked about keeping quiet about his workouts with teammates during the lockout, Ben said, “That’s kind of how I am. To me, it’s not about letting the world know we’re doing it. As long as we know we’re doing and we’re doing it, that’s all that matters.That’s just how we operate and how I operate. I’ve gotten some letters from people, I’ve heard some things like ‘Why aren’t you working out?’ Well, we are working out. We’ve probably worked out more than most teams. It’s just that we choose to keep it quiet.”
