Hall of Fames include more than just a bust or plaque to represent the illustrious careers of those players enshrined. And now that Ben Roethlisberger has made it clear about his intentions to retire, the Pro Football Hall of Fame is collecting more artifacts to represent Roethlisberger, who is a lock to eventually become a member of the Hall of Fame.
The latest piece of Roethlisberger memorabilia to arrive in Canton is the final jersey he worse in the regular season as Steelers quarterback. Big Ben’s game worn road jersey from Pittsburgh’s Week 18 game in Baltimore will now forever live in the Canton football museum.

The Steelers beat Ravens in that Week 18 matchup before losing in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs to Chiefs.
Roethlisberger’s legacy includes being a two-time Super Bowl champion, a six-time Pro Bowler, and a two-time NFL passing yards leader. He holds over a dozen NFL records and is the all-time Steelers leader in nearly every quarterback category. He has also played the most games and seasons of any player in team history.
Roethlisberger sits top five in nearly every major passing statistic in league history, most notably passing yards (64,088), touchdowns (418), completions (5,440) and wins (165).
