Steelers GM Supports Ben Roethlisberger

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said he supports quarterback Ben Roethlisberger 100 percent as the team's unquestioned leader amid criticism from disgruntled receiver Antonio Brown. "I have no problem with him. He can call me out and thats fine. What he does I totally respect because Ive seen him too many times win games for us and come through in situations," Colbert said. Owner Art Rooney also said last month that they plan to sign Big Ben, 37, to a contract extension. Roethlisberger led the NFL in yards (5,129) and had a career-high 34 touchdowns, so he wasn't as washed up as most fantasy owners thought before the season. He'll still be in play as a QB1 next season, but losing Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown -- two of the best playmakers in football -- will surely hurt his overall ceiling.

Steelers Talking Extension With Ben Roethlisberger

Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II said the team has already started talking about a contract extension with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who will be in the final year of his current deal in 2019. So, I think that Ben has some good years left. Hes still, I would say, close to being in the prime of his career and now that we see quarterbacks around the league that are playing into their 40s, I am not sure there is any reason why Ben cant play for several more years. So we are looking forward to that," Rooney said. Big Ben will be 37 in March, but he threw for a career-high 5,129 yards last season and also posted a career-high 34 touchdowns against 16 interceptions. Injuries are a concern as he ages, as well as the fact that Antonio Brown might not be with the team next year, but Roethlisberger still profiles as a sturdy QB1 for fantasy owners as long as he continues playing.

Steelers Expected To Restructure Ben Roethlisberger's Contract

The Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to restructure quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's contract before the new league year begins on March 13, according to league sources. It would give the team more salary cap room if they decide to trade wide receiver Antonio Brown. The 36-year-old was one of the best fantasy QBs in 2018, throwing for a career-high 5,129 yards, 34 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. He'll head into 2019 as a strong QB1 target despite his age, although losing Brown would certainly be a hit to his value.
