From Teresa Varley at this afternoon:

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is looking forward to getting on the field for the first practice of camp and putting Todd Haley’s offense to the real test.

“It’s exciting to get back into it,” said Roethlisberger as he checked into camp. “OTAs are not really getting back into it. We need to put pads on, see how some people can perform in pads and get rolling. We will have pads on, tackling, and that is why I am excited.”
