Summary

Forget the retirement talk, Ben Roethlisberger seems energized this offseason and wants to play a few more years for the Steelers. He's got great weapons around him with guys like RB Le'Veon Bell and WRs Antonio Brown plus JuJu Smith-Schuster to throw to once again in 2018. Roethlisberger will be working with his former quarterbacks coach as the team's new offensive coordinator. Randy Fichtner spent the last eight years developing a strong rapport with Roethlisberger, and he should craft a system that works to Big Ben's strengths. Roethlisberger could once again post a top-10 season at the position if he stays healthy, but right now he's getting drafted as a mid-range QB2 by fantasy owners. (June 4)

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger won't pursue extension (Sun Jun 17, 08:07 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger won't pursue an extension on his contract, which expires in two years, over the summer months.

Our View: Roethlisberger has a cap hit of $23.2 million each of the next two seasons. Set to hit the open market in 2020, the Steelers might want to extend him a couple of more years. Roethlisberger was talking retirement (or at least hinting at it)...then Pittsburgh drafted QB Mason Rudolph. Now, Roethlisberger talks like he wants to play five more years. Roethlisberger said he prefers to just play football and let his representation worry about the money.
