    Steelers Rookie WR Admits Big Ben Taught And Tested Him During OTAs

    It’s a well-known fact that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger missed two thirds of the team’s OTA practices this year. However, what’s probably not well-known this year is that for the three OTA practices he did attend, he likely made rookie wide receiver James Washington, the team’s second-round draft pick this year, a better player.








    “He’s a good teacher,” Washington said of Roethlisberger at the conclusion of Thursdays OTA practice, the final one of 2018, according to 93.7 The Fan. “I run a route, he’ll tell me what I did good, what I need to improve on. He’s testing me, throwing balls everywhere and just seeing my range of motion just testing and he’s a good quarterback to work with.”


    As you can see in the video clip from Thursday’s practice below from Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com that I slowed down, it looks like Roethlisberger was testing Washington’s range in the end zone. The rookie wide receiver not only did a nice job of elevating to catch the football, he first showed some nice footwork in his route............

    That high ball just under the goalposts is a pass that Ben has always loved to throw in the RZ. Not always had guys capable of high pointing the ball and getting down in bounds. Washington better practice that. I figure Ben rifles at least a half dozen of those his way this season.

    Ben didn't invent that pass. It has been part of Steelers history.
