Earlier today, NFL Network's Albert Breer mentioned that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger showed up to offseason workouts "far earlier" than in years past, and, from what Breer hears, has been "terrific" learning the offense being implemented by new coordinator Todd Haley.

While it's not a surprise Roethlisberger is adapting with ease, teammate Ryan Clark, being the nice (and outspoken) guy that he is, decided to confirm the hearsay for us all, adding what he's seen first-hand has the potential to be "scary good."

On top of learning Haley's offense -- a process that's definitely had its bumps and bruises thus far -- Big Ben is rehabbing a late-season ankle injury, so there's been a lot on his plate.

It'll be interesting to see what unfolds during training camp and preseason, when the bullets start flying for real. Knowing Haley's history, and Roethlisberger's improvisational style, a future butting of the heads shouldn't be ruled out.
