Thomas Davis Accuses Ben Roethlisberger of Quitting on 2019 Steelers



Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Thomas Davis has accused Ben Roethlisberger of quitting on the Steelers during the 2019 season.

Appearing on the NFL Network Sunday, Davis said that he believes Roethlisberger could have came back last season, but decided not to.

“He could have come back and been a part of that playoff run, possibly,” Davis said. “But he chose not too.”

“I just think that he kind of looked at the roster and the way things started out last year, and he kind of gave up on the team, in my opinion,” Davis continued.

Roethlisberger suffered a season-ending elbow injury Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks and still has not been cleared to throw a football.

Speaking with members of the media last Thursday, Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert gave an update on Roethlisberger, saying the organization is “hopeful he can make a complete recovery” and that he is “on course for that.”

Roethlisberger will be 38 years-old when the Steelers open the 2020 season, the 17th of his career.
