Report: Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger agree to new two-year deal

Ben Roethlisberger

The Pittsburgh Steelers have settled their new contract with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the deal is for two years and worth $63 million.

That is roughly the going rate for an elite quarterback. It was widely known that this deal was pretty close to getting done over the last day or two, and the two sides have been optimistic about reaching it for a while.

Roethlisberger threw 34 touchdowns last season and a league-leading 5,129 passing yards. At age 37 and having considered retirement in the past, it’s fair to wonder if this two-year deal will be his last.
