Steelers Not Rushing Extension For Ben Roethlisberger 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Mar 25, 2019 12:34 pm

Ben Roethlisberger has one year left on his contract and the Pittsburgh Steelers aren\'t rushing an agreement on an extension.

Kevin Colbert said talks with Roethlisberger are \"still ongoing.\"

\"It\'s probably his last contract as an NFL player, so it\'s significant. It\'s significant for us,\" Colbert said of the 37-year-old. \"We\'re in a different dynamic from a financial standpoint as far as the cap because we don\'t have a couple of players with us before. So we have to make sure it all makes sense. It has to make sense for both sides, and we\'re comfortable at some point we hope it does.\"

Roethlisberger was due a $5 million roster bonus on March 15, so once that payment locked in, both sides could take their time.
