Mike Florio suggests Ben Roethlisberger could fit with many NFL Football Teams other than the Steele
Updated: Feb 21, 2021
Once the 2020 season ended for the Pittsburgh Steelers the "what if's," began to start. What if Ben Roethlisberger decides to retire? What if Ben Roethlisberger is cut by the Pittsburgh Steelers? What if Ben Roethlisberger decides to play for another team? Speculation could go on and on, but only Ben Roethlisberger knows what he truly wants. As we stand here today the Steelers and Roethlisberger are in talks to restructure Ben's contract to help the Steelers cap situation. Nothing else is going on other than speculation.
Florio recently wrote an article on possible destinations for Ben Roethlisberger if he were to be cut from the Steelers. He pretty much names almost every single NFL team, but one team he does mention is the Washington Football Team with Ron Rivera. Could you imagine the Pittsburgh Steelers signing Dwayne Haskins and letting Ben Roethlisberger go? It would be laughable. Another possibility Florio suggests would be for Ben to sign with the New England Patriots. Oh yes, that would go over well with Pittsburgh Steeler fans seeing their best QB in franchise history end his career with Bill Belichick...
Mike Florio on Ben Roethlisberger: "The Steelers, fully aware that they may not have enough around quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to justify bringing him back for another year, suddenly seem to be ambivalent about an ongoing relationship. So if (and it’s still a fairly big if) the Steelers decide to sever ties with Big Ben, he’ll become a free agent."
At the end of the day, it is hard to imagine Ben Roethlisberger playing with any other football team than the Pittsburgh Steelers. Even Ben has said it himself that he would retire before playing with another football team. My prediction is Ben Roethlisberger will restructure for another year with the Pittsburgh Steelers and return for another season. It would be shocking to see Ben play for another team or get cut by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
