Ben Roethlisberger Retires as Third-Highest Paid Player in NFL History



Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger announced his retirement from football Thursday after 18 years in the game.

Not only did Roethlisberger achieve plenty of success with Pittsburgh during his NFL career, but he was also compensated handsomely.

Roethlisberger retires as the third-highest earning player in league history at $267.2 millions across 18 seasons, according to Spotrac.

Only Tom Brady ($292M) and Drew Brees ($269M) have earned more during their respective careers.

Roethlisberger retires as Pittsburgh’s all-time leader in passing yards (64,088), touchdowns (418), completions (5,440) and wins (165). He is also top five in nearly every major passing statistic in league history.
