Team captains named today

From the Steelers organization this afternoon via Twitter:

Team captains for the 2011 Season have been announced – Ben, Hines Ward, James Farrior, and Arnaz Battle.



From Mark Kaboly, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Roethlisberger and Hines Ward were named offensive captains, James Farrior defensive captain and Arnaz Battle special teams captain.

Roethlisberger was a team captain in 2008 and 2009, but was not voted for the position a season ago amidst his offseason legal troubles.

“He has done a great job of opening himself up to the team and keeping his nose clean,” Willie Colon said. “He is in a real good stable comfort place. He has taken on a leader more than a lot of us.”
