With only one more year left on his contract, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is hoping for a new deal with the team.
The Steelers all-time leading passer and two-time Superbowl champion told 93.7 The Fan radio program in Pittsburgh that he’s ended the season as strong as ever and is a lot healthier for a change.
“This is as healthy exiting a season as I’ve felt. I felt as healthy throughout the season just cause of the offseason work I put in last offseason and I plan on doing that again this year. I feel great, I felt great all year, and we’ll continue to do that. Ultimately it’s up to the representation and the Rooney family to do something hopefully this offseason and hopefully sooner than later because I love being here with this family,” Roethlisberger said.
Big Ben set numerous franchise passing records in 2014, but the Steelers were bounced at home in the Wildcard round of the playoffs in a 30-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
“When the time comes, I’m sure [my agents will] come in town here before too long, whenever they start getting ready to talk to the Rooney family and we’ll sit down and we’ll discuss all the different options and possibilities and so when that time comes, I don’t think we’ll leave any stone unturned.,” Roethlisberger said.
