Big Ben’s offensive lineman says he was seriously considering retirement

Ben Roethlisberger wants to put up 30 points a game

Ben Roethlisberger was serious about retirement

Big Ben had made some comments this off-season about retiring. He would not guarantee playing after the 2017 NFL season, and his offensive lineman says he was seriously considering retirement.

“I got to sit down and talk to him and one thing he told me is he did take it seriously,” Colon said. “He’s dealt with a lot of injuries.”

“He’s passionate about playing, but one thing that keeps his fire going is that offensive line,” Colon said. “You have to worry about the health of Ben Roethlisberger. Can you keep him upright, can he stay healthy for the duration? They have the offensive line, they have the pieces around him to make it work.”

Big Ben is 35, but he takes a beating like no other.  Do you think he will be able to give up football?
