In his first public comments since rejoining the team last week, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said he has "put a lot of thought into my life, the decisions I've made in the past" and has worked with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to make changes.

Roethlisberger, who made a brief statement and took a pair of questions from the Pittsburgh media, said he is "looking forward to the second chance" he said he has received both in football and in life. He also expressed excitement to be back practicing with his teammates.

The NFL suspended Roethlisberger for six games in April for violating its personal-conduct policy after he was investigated, but not criminally charged, in connection with an alleged sexual assault in Milledgeville, Ga. in March. The NFL cleared Roethlisberger to return to practice last week on the approval of its medical professionals.
