Roethlisberger Angrily Refutes Report Of Wanting Trade 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Nov 11, 2013 1:31 am

Ben Roethlisberger responded with an angry rebuttal to a report that questioned his future with the Pittsburgh Steelers.


"It's ridiculous," Roethlisberger said after Sunday's win. "This is where I've always wanted to be. I don't want to play for anyone else.

"I'm a Pittsburgher -- this is home. I'm proud to raise my kids here. I don't want to play for anyone else."


NFL.com reported that Roethlisberger is disenchanted with the direction of the Steelers and plans to ask the team to explore trading him as they did this past offseason.


Ryan Tollner, Roethlisberger's agent, also refuted the report shortly after it surfaced in a series of tweets.


"This is completely wrong and inaccurate," Tollner said. "Ben has always said he wants to play his entire career for the Steelers, and his roots are set firmly in Pittsburgh. He has a lot left in the tank and is 100 percent committed to winning more championships with the Steelers."
