General manager Kevin Colbert revealed this week that the team has officially begun preliminary negotiations with the franchise quarterback, though there is no timeline for a deal to be finalized.
Roethlisberger, 33, better land a nine figure deal. The Dolphins are talking a 9 figure deal with Ryan Tannehill who has not accomplished a quarter of what big Ben has. That doesn’t concern Colbert, who compared his quarterback to others that have excelled in their mid-30s, such as Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.
“I think Ben is going to be better quarterback down the road than he has to this point,” Colbert explained. “He’ll get better with good players around him.”
I have to agree with Colbert, but how much will it be for?
