Ben was a call-in guest this afternoon on the Finsiders radio program.

ben_wallaceThe majority of the interview was about friend and former teammate Mike Wallace:

“Love Mike, was sad to see him go. He’s a great teammate, obviously a great player, but I thought he was even better off the field. Just a great guy, great teammate. Miami is very lucky to have him because he’s a great player.”

He also talked about the Pouncey brothers and the Steelers upcoming season!
