Ben Roethlisberger texted Mason Rudolph to wish him good luck at minicamp

Ben Roethlisberger

Ben Roethlisberger may not agree with the Pittsburgh Steelers’ decision to draft a quarterback in the third round, but he seems to be making an effort to be a good teammate.

Roehtlisberger said recently that he doesn’t understand why the Steelers drafted a QB so early and that he has no interest in playing the role of mentor. Despite those remarks, Mason Rudolph says he received a text from Big Ben this week wishing him luck at rookie minicamp.

While a very small gesture, that indicates Roehtlisberger is not planning to be a total jerk to Rudolph, who has continued to say all of the right things since the Steelers selected him.

For someone who has openly contemplated retirement in recent years, Roethlisberger has seemed awfully offended that the Steelers are planning for the future. You can understand him not wanting to teach Rudolph how to take his job, but there’s a middle ground between “leave me alone” and “here’s everything I know and how I came to know it.”
