Ben Roethlisberger Willing to Restructure Contract
January 28Matt LaMarcaSportsGrid
Steelers’ owner Art Rooney said earlier on Thursday that it would require “significant concessions” from Roethlisberger to keep him in in Pittsburgh, and it appears the veteran signal-caller is on board. He said he wants to do everything he can to keep the team, including restructuring his contract. Roethlisberger’s current contract carries a cap hit of $41.2 million next season, so restructuring would give the team some additional flexibility in the offseason.
Big Ben started the year red hot but faded mightily towards the end of the season. His final stat line was fine on paper — he finished with 3803 yards, 33 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions — but he graded out as just the No. 25 quarterback according to Pro Football Focus. His days of being an elite option at the position are well in the past, but it sounds like he will be back with the Steelers for at least one more season.
