Report: Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger Have Still Not Met to Discuss Future

Published

on

Pittsburgh Steelers brass and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger have reportedly still not met to discuss the 38-year-old’s future with the franchise, according to NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala.

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert was non-committal with regard to Roethlisberger’s future with the media last week, but admitted the financial barriers to bringing him back are significant, and not the only factor the team must weigh.

Roethlisberger’s $41 million cap hit is the largest in the league entering next season, which poses a significant problem for the maxed-out Steelers. He could forgo up to nearly $18 million of his salary for this upcoming season to provide the team some breathing room.

Roethlisberger finished with a successful season statistically, but was plagued by inconsistency, as the Steelers dropped five of six following an 11-0 start.

The two-time Super Bowl champion passed for 3,803 yards and 33 touchdowns with ten interceptions, but saw his play drop over the latter half of the year. Roethlisberger is set to turn 39 years old on March 2.
