Steelers GM says he wants to sign Big Ben to retire a Steeler
Could Big Ben Roethlisberger be getting an extension soon? Well the GM of the Pittsburgh Steelers Kevin Colbert sure acted as if he wanted Ben to have one soon.
“It’s unanimous that we want Ben to be a Steeler for the rest of his career,” Colbert said on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh. “There’s nobody that I’d rather have or the franchise would rather have than Ben. He’s won for us, there’s still a lot of tread of the tires.
“We feel good about where he is, we feel great about how he finished last year and we’re looking to build off of that.”
Roethlisberger’s contract has two years left — a time when the Steelers have traditionally re-signed quarterbacks to longer deals. While the Steelers have not said they were in negotiations with Roethlisberger who will have a cap hit of just under $18.9 million in 2014, they have made it clear that one will get done.
