Report: Steelers working hard on contract extension for Ben Roethlisberger

Ben Roethlisberger is set to become a free agent after the 2019 NFL season, and the Pittsburgh Steelers do not want to see him reach that point.

The team is working hard to sign Roethlisberger to a contract extension prior to the NFL Draft, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Roethlisberger signed a 4-year, $87.4 million contract extension in March 2015 that was expiring after 2019.

Though he is 37 years old and threatened to retire a few years in a row, he is still playing well. Roethlisberger passed for 5,129 yards, 34 touchdowns and 16 interceptions last season. He will begin a new chapter with the Steelers in the coming season, one without Antonio Brown.
