Roethlisberger ranks 10th in NFL history with 46,814 passing yards and ninth in touchdowns with 301. The Steelers appear to think Roethlisberger — who’s made three straight Pro Bowls — has at least a few prime years left.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said he’s “110 percent committed like I said I was” to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2017.
Roethlisberger created uneasiness among Steelers fans after telling 92.3 The Fan in late January that he would evaluate his future and “if there’s going to be a next season.” In April, Roethlisberger said on his official Twitter account that the Steelers would get his “absolute best” next season.
Ben Roethlisberger has been in contact with his trusted Steelers offensive line after a new Cleveland Brown set out goals to sack Pittsburgh’s quarterback.
No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett has made clear that Roethlisberger is his first AFC North target. Apparently Roethlisberger got word of this thanks to conversations with his cheap Pro Bowl jerseys center.

When asked on draft night by ESPN’s Randy Moss which AFC North quarterback he’s most eager to meet on the field, Garrett said, “Big Ben. … I’m going to try to take him down.” Garrett told Cleveland media he’s been watching Roethlisberger “for a very long time” and looks forward to scheming against the Steelers offensive line. “I finally get to face him,” said Garrett, according to Steelers.com.
Before Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger publicly committed to playing a 14th season, he was putting in work with one of his new Steelers offensive weapons.
Of course, Roethlisberger didn’t know then that Pitt running back James Conner would become the Steelers’ late-third-round pick. But while in Irvine, California, spending time with Rep 1 Sports — the agency representing both players — Conner and Roethlisberger took to a nearby practice field along with No. 2 overall pick Mitch Trubisky and others.
Roethlisberger suffered an injury on his final play of the game. With 4 minutes, 34 seconds left in the fourth quarter and the Steelers up 30-12, Roethlisberger attempted a pass while on the move. The ball was intercepted by cornerback Xavien Howard, and Roethlisberger was slow to get up. The Steelers had taken running back Le’Veon Bell out of the game at that point.
The battery of Bryant, Bell, Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown went 8-2 when all on the field together in 2014. Three years later, the foursome has its best chance yet to complete a full season together.
Despite the loss of Ladarius Green to a failed physical, the depth at receiver is such that Roethlisberger didn’t get any reps with second-round pick JuJu Smith-Schuster on Tuesday. He’s busy throwing to several others with starter’s experience.

When asked about how serious he was about potentially retiring, Roethlisberger responded, “What, did you think I was lying?”And regarding how close he got to retirement, Roethlisberger said, “doesn’t matter, I’m here now.”
The Steelers return their top playmakers from last year’s team, which won 11 regular-season games and two playoff games, plus receiving threats in second-round rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant, who returns from suspension.
The quarterback told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette this week that he’s “got to take it year by year at this point.”
“I’m never going to look past any year because I want to give everything I have to that year,” Roethlisberger said. “I’m not worried about next year. I have to win now. I think we can. I believe we have just about everybody back. I want to see what we look like as a team that’s a year better.”
Roethlisberger clarified that thinking about his future after football doesn’t have to equate to an early retirement, citing Steelers linebacker James Harrison, who retired briefly in 2014 but just signed a two-year extension and turned 39 on Thursday.
The 35-year-old Roethlisberger is essentially on a year-to-year plan; he hasn’t publicly committed to playing in 2018.
