Ben Roethlisberger Agrees To New Deal

The Pittsburgh Steelers finalized a two-year contract extension for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Wednesday, the team announced. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed. He was entering the final year of a four-year, $87.6 million extension that he signed in 2015. The 37-year-old will remain a Steeler up to his 40th birthday. While Big Ben was a high-end QB1 in 2018, he could disappoint this year with both Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown leaving.

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.
