Ben Roethlisberger cut sugar and carbs from his diet this offseason in an effort to lose weight entering his 15th training camp with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Roethlisberger, who turned 36 in March and worked with a personal trainer this summer, said the goal is to prolong his career and stay fresh.

Roethlisberger looks noticeably slimmer this camp and ran at a steady pace during the team’s conditioning test, which requires players to record eight 100-yard runs in 18 seconds or less.

Roethlisberger is chasing a third Super Bowl, and if he follows his outlook to play three to five more seasons, he’ll need to extend a contract that expires in 2020. Big Ben’s best days are behind him, I think, but maybe he’ll be able to somehow last another four or five years.
