Ben Roethlisberger Can Retire as QB with Longest Career with One Team in NFL History
With just two games remaining in the regular season, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger acknowledged Thursday that he will likely retire at the end of the year.
If this season is his last, he will have added another significant accomplishment to his Hall of Fame résumé.
Upon the completion of Pittsburgh’s 2021 campaign, Roethlisberger will have played his 18th season in a Steelers uniform, the longest tenure for a quarterback playing with a single team in NFL history.
Roethlisberger will surpass Pro Football Hall of Famer Dan Marino, who played all 17 seasons of his career with the Miami Dolphins.
A two-time Super Bowl champion and six-time Pro Bowler, Roethlisberger is the franchise record-holder in every major passing category.
He has thrown for 63,721 yards and 416 touchdowns, while completing 64.5% of his passes.
