Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will play his final game at Heinz Field on Monday night when the club hosts the Cleveland Browns.

With the end of Roethlisberger’s legendary Steelers career on the horizon, his former teammates took to social media ahead of the game to reminisce and pay tribute to No. 7.

Former Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison shared a montage of pregame embraces he and Roethlisberger shared set to Lionel Richie’s “Goodbye.”

“That’s my quarterback,” Harrison tweeted Monday. “It was a privilege to be your teammate and a great honor to call you my brother.”

Pro Football Hall of Famer Jerome Bettis hung up his cleats following Super Bowl XL, and credited Roethlisberger for allowing him to go out on top.

“As I retired, I retired a champion definitely because of Ben Roethlisberger,” Bettis said. “And what he was able to accomplish on the field, but also his development off the field as well.”

Former defensive end Brett Keisel had a simple message.

“Love ya 7,” he tweeted Friday.

Former Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown even wished Roethlisberger well in a Cameo shared Monday.

“I know Ben, he’s a competitor,” Brown added. “He loves to play football. One of the greatest quarterbacks all time,” Brown said. “So let’s be positive, let’s cheer him on, let’s wish for one of his best games tonight and let’s keep business boomin’.”
