Steelers Tomlin, Roethlisberger Present Thursday For Pittsburgh Spring Practice

Even though a few notable pro days took place on Thursday, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin evidently didn’t attend any of them. Instead, Tomlin was back in Pittsburgh on Thursday and was even spotted at the Panthers spring practice along with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Tomlin had a busy week that started with him making his annual visit to the Pittsburgh Pirates spring training location in Bradenton, Florida prior to them heading north for the start of the season. On Tuesday, Tomlin was present at the Florida State pro day and on Wednesday he was farther down in the state of Florida watching the Miami pro day that took place in a steady rain.

The 2016 pro day schedule should come to an end next Thursday and as for Tomlin’s itinerary,¬†it’s probably a good bet that he’ll be present for the one on Monday that will take place at West Virginia.

As for Roethlisberger, he sure looks like he’s lost a few pounds this offseason. The Steelers OTA sessions will be getting underway not long after the 2016 NFL Draft concludes and the team is expected¬†to announce that schedule on Friday.

    Lol….Tomlin must be following a different diet.

  • PaeperCup

    hahaha, no kidding. He’s looking less and less like Omar Epps.

  • CP72

    Yeah kinda more Cedric the Entertainer now.

  • WilliamSekinger

    Not good. Ben did a terrific job of slimming down to his playing weight last year. I don’t want him losing any more weight!

    Ben played with a belly last season.

    Or Andy Reid.

    When did he get down to playing weight??? I thought he was headed to Cam Thomas territory.

    Sometimes Ben has had tough off seasons with little surgeries and nagging injuries which have certainly prevented him from training hard. He certainly does look better. I know his ankle was shattered a few years ago and he will never be his former self. But this looks very promising. Let’s hope for the best. I definitely take this as a good sign.

    Im not into making fun of fat people or anyone in particular, but it would be pretty interesting to see a collection of photos from 2007 till now of Tomlin. He sure has changed over the years, particularly his belly and hair. The job must be strenuous
