Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been very focused on weight loss ever since the 2020 NFL season concluded. ESPN's Ryan Burr reports that the signal-caller's "biggest concern is weight loss" and that "he has been so driven since [the] season ended." (Ryan Burr on Twitter)
Burr added that Roethlisberger's "diet is stricter than Brady." The quarterback's camp also says that he is in the best shape of his life and “hears everything.” By losing weight, Roethlisberger can remove some of the pressure that is on his joints, which could in turn lessen the potential for knee injuries like the ones that impacted him in 2020.
