Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger turns 30 in less than a month, and the Post-Gazette reports on his efforts to put the remainder of his career in perspective.

"When I talked to Mike [Tomlin], I said I don't know how much longer I have to play, no one does; it could be two years, three years, it could be eight years. Who knows?" Roethlisberger said during an extensive interview Thursday.

Aging can be cruel to anyone, but it's particularly cruel in the National Football League, where a 30-year-old man has to think about how many years he has left. Other than his struggles staying healthy, there's no indication that Roethlisberger is anywhere near the end of the line, of course, but as he turns 30, one never knows what might happen.

The Post-Gazette also reports that last week, Roethlisberger began working out at the Steelers' facility in Pittsburgh. He says he has "never worked out this early" and that he's hoping to report to the Steelers this summer in good shape so that he can stave off further injuries.
