After recently poking fun at the level of fitness of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, NFL insider Jay Glazer attempted to explain his remarks.

No one is about to pound the table for Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in an argument about the most athletic passers in the NFL right now. Let’s just get that out of the way first.

However, a tremendous amount of athleticism is still required to even perform at a decent level as a quarterback in the league. So to say Roethlisberger is unathletic would be an inaccurate statement to make.

Still, NFL insider Jay Glazer recently thought it would be hilarious when he recently declared that the Steelers quarterback is, “allergic, “ to fitness. Glazer continued to pile on when he said, “(Ben’s) idea of a great offseason workout program is doing one yoga session, playing golf, and drinking some beer.”

Let’s wait a few seconds to contain our laughter. Man, what is Glazer doing by just wasting his time as an NFL insider when he could be touring the world as a stand-up comedian instead?

Shortly after his comments were made public, word spread to Roethlisberger and, unsurprisingly, he wasn’t ecstatic by what was being said about him.

This led to Glazer having to “clarify” his comments about the Pittsburgh quarterback and declare that it was basically all in good fun. He did admit that Roethlisberger was, “honestly upset,” by his comments, especially since he’s attempting to return to the field after a serious elbow injury last season.

Even after Glazer utilized the excuse that it was just a case of two friends making fun of each other, he still doubled-down on his comments and declared that nothing he said about the quarterback’s fitness, “was false.”

Let’s just take a guess here and say that Glazer probably isn’t going to land any inside information from the Steelers this year after this little incident of his.
