Ebene News – UA – Report: Ben Roethlisberger not ready to retire, plans to play for Steelers in 2021

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Monday that Roethlisberger, 38, intends to complete the final year of his contract and return as Steelers QB in 2021 Why? Schefter says QB is having too much fun to hang him up again

“after this physically costly season, sources around Roethlisberger believe the two-time Super Bowl champion is having too much fun and loving his team too much to walk away after the 2020 season”

None of this is hard to believe, especially since Roethlisberger only played six quarters of the 2019 season before injuring his elbow so badly that he needed reconstructive surgery He missed the game and his teammates and is delighted to be back, and it probably helps that he also has an above average season

The 2021 season would be Roethlisberger’s 18th in the NFL, all spent with the Steelers There are fans who don’t remember any other Steelers quarterback besides him For people who aren’t fans of the Steelers, who were awaiting Roethlisberger’s retirement, he must feel like he’s been the Steelers quarterback throughout the modern era He’s always been there He’ll always be there We’ll never escape him

He’s not the only one Drew Brees is 41 and has been in the league since God was in short pants Tom Brady has been playing for so long he practically invented football Roethlisberger is of that ilk, quarterback -back who can’t resist the siren call of the grill and plays forever However, he recently discussed what it would take for him to retire

“If I don’t play football well enough, I have to hang up,” Roethlisberger said after the Steelers’ 26-15 loss to the Buffalo Bills, their second straight loss after the season started 11-0

At least Roethlisberger has set the bar for his future retirement, and despite his low passer rating (he’s 20th in the NFL after Week 15), and his reliance on short passes and quick outs that have become easier and easier to defend, he’s not there yet
