Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert was non-committal about quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s future with the team.

Roethlisberger had a solid season last year as Pittsburgh went 12-4.

However, the Steelers were bounced in the first round of the playoff by the Cleveland Browns.

Now, Roethlisberger carries a $41.25 million cap hit for next season. The Steelers could save $19 million by releasing him or could restructure his deal to keep him on the roster.

Ben Roethlisberger did a lot of really good things last year,” Colbert added. “We anticipate that he could still do really good things going forward. Hopefully we can figure out how to do what’s best for the organization and for Ben. Hopefully he’ll be able to see that.”

Roethlisberger is a six-time Pro Bowler and won two Super Bowls with the Steelers.

Last season, he threw for 3,803 yards, 33 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 15 games.
