Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller with the final word on training camp.

Heath Miller, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers

Q: The triplets – Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown - were historic last year. Can they get better?

HM: I don’t know. Statistically-wise, maybe, but I’m not sure. I think they’re the best at what they do. I feel Le’Veon’s a young player. He can get better. Last year was only his second year. He's in great shape this year. I think he has a full understanding of everything we've asked him to do. I feel the coaches have a good feel for his ability and what he's really good at. So I think there may be some improvement there. Statistically wise, it will be hard.

Q: I'm not worried about statistics. Are they going to be better players? And in what way?

HM: Antonio? I don't know. Can he be better? Ben? Can he be better?

Q: Ben can if the other two get better, if his weapons are better.

HM: Yeah. We'll see. Time will tell. I don't like to have high expectations. I kind of just like to put the work in and go do it. Certainly they're great players and we have the potential to be a really good offense, but I don't like to talk too much about expectations.

Q: I'm sure you can understand a fan's high expectations. Martavis Bryant has no choice but to get better. Same with Markus Wheaton. You could benefit from all of that, right?

HM: Yeah. We have a lot of playmakers. You would think we should have some continuity, because everyone was together last year. The offensive line all comes back. The coaching staff is back and all doing the same stuff, and adding to it. You would think we should be better, but we've got to put the work in, we've got to be on the same page, and we've got to play as a team. And defenses are going to be scheming against us, you know? That always adds another challenge.
