Roethlisberger, 39, will continue his magical tenure with the Steelers. He’s played in Pittsburgh his whole career.
At one point, it appeared that Roethlisherger’s relationship with the Steelers could be coming to a close. After all, general manager Kevin Colbert’s noncommittal comments recently sent somewhat negative signals.
Last season, the Steelers collected a strong 12-4 record. The Steelers got eliminated in the first round of the postseason by the Cleveland Browns.
As for Roethlisherger, he had a resurgent 2020 campaign after missing the majority of the 2019 season with a shoulder injury.
He threw for an impressive 3,803 yards, 33 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last season.
