Ben Roethlisberger said he wants to restructure his contract.
"I want to do everything I can and made that very clear to them from the very beginning that it was my idea to basically help the team however I can this year," Roethlisberger said. It puts team owner Art Rooney's Thursday comments in a very different light. Rooney said the Steelers would require "significant concessions" from the veteran if he was going to play another season in Pittsburgh. It seems Roethlisberger -- who has a $41.2 million cap hit in 2021 -- is on board with making the necessary adjustments needed to keep him at the head of the Steelers' offense for at least one more season.

Steelers president Art Rooney said the team will address coach Mike Tomlin's contract this offseason.
“We’ll address Mike’s contract with him as time goes on this offseason,” Rooney said. “I feel comfortable in saying he’ll be our coach into the future.” Tomlin is signed through 2021 with a team option for 2022. That puts him on borderline lame duck status going into next season. The Steelers should add a few years to Tomlin's deal to give him more security. Tomlin is 145-78-1 over 14 seasons in Pittsburgh.

Ben Roethlisberger said he doesn't care about how much the Steelers pay him in 2021.
Apparently Roethlisberger will play for the love of the game next season as he's trashed any leverage he may have had with the organization. After team owner Art Rooney said Roethlisberger could not play for the Steelers without a contract restructuring, the veteran QB was quick to concede if it meant another year in Pittsburgh. The Athletic's Ed Bouchette said it "sounds as if both sides are looking at just one more season for him." It seems Roethlisberger, who will be 39 next month, doesn't want to go out with a spectacular late-season collapse that ended with a Wild Card loss to Cleveland.

This is what I'm talking about on the sb fred.

If you asked me about the 08 or 09 GF, it's like talking about ancient Rome. But sb43 and the play the video is about, which occurred in between those GFs, is pretty fresh in my mind, and I'm sort of in disbelief that we've just seen sb55.

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said he has to "look at this current [cap] situation" when asked about Ben Roethlisberger being the 2021 starting quarterback.
In a Wednesday press conference, Colbert had multiple chances to endorse Roethlisberger as his 2021 starting quarterback but repeatedly dodged questions. "As we sit here today, Ben is a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers," Colbert continued. "What type of team can he anticipate being around him if we decide we can move forward together?” Roethlisberger comes with a $41.2 million cap hit if no contract adjustments are made this offseason. Teams don't like to end Hall of Fame careers with a sour taste, but Pittsburgh could cut Roethlisberger and save $19 million against the cap. Because the Steelers are $30 million over the cap, Colbert will have to make some very tough decisions in the next few weeks ahead of free agency. Roethlisberger tentatively remains the favorite to be the 2021 starter, but it's not a lock after the deliberate word choice by an experienced general manager.

Ben Roethlisberger's player rep said the Steelers have confirmed they want him back for 2021.
GM Kevin Colbert Goff'd Roethlisberger a bit in a press conference last week, saying "as we sit here today, Ben is a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers." Not a glowing endorsement, though Colbert hinted the main issue was Roethlisberger's mammoth $41.2 million cap hit. His agent insists they are willing to get "creative" to ensure Roethlisberger remains with the only team he has ever known. This situation seems like it will resolve with Roethlisberger remaining under center in Pittsburgh.
