Ben Roethlisberger Will Do Anything To Stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger says that he will do anything to stay in Pittsburgh. With all the rumors that are flying around about him wanting a trade, he is saying everything in order to clear that noise. One point of discussion is his contract and here is what he said about that:

“You know what? Obviously, I will do whatever I need to do,” Roethlisberger said. “That’s something that can be discussed when the time comes. It’s not really my thing. I play football. I have people to deal with all that stuff. I will do whatever it takes to stay here and be a part of this team and help this team win.”

Why wouldn’t Pittsburgh want to take advantage of that. If they need some cap space in order to bring more weapons, then might as well get that room.

I still think that Big Ben is one of the top quarterbacks in the game and that he should finish out his career in a Steelers uniform. I can’t really think of him in any other uni.

    I agree he is one of the top QB in the league. He’ll stay, but he won’t get flaco money.

    If “his people” insist he be the highest paid quarterback in the NFL, he’ll be in another uniform, you can bet on it.
    Ben’s a great QB, love him, and I’ll always be a fan. But he’s not the best QB in the NFL and if “his people” demand he be paid as the best QB in the NFL, well, good luck to ya and I hope it doesn’t take the Steelers another 25 years to draft a QB in the first round.

      right. if his people do ask for that and why wouldn’t they, the there is no way that will be happening.
