Ben Roethlisberger Willing to Change His Contract with Steelers

Ben Roethlisberger has to change his contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers because of pay cuts. The Steelers can’t afford to pay Roethlisberger’s  $41 Million salary-cap. This is a lot of money and the loss of revenue from Covid-19 makes this payment not feasible for the Steelers at all. Roethlisberger is fine with the pay cut and wants to play for the Steelers regardless of how much he makes. Ed Bouchette who is a senior writer for The Athletic Pittsburgh interviewed Roethlisberger about this. Ed Bouchette tweeted out what Roethlisberger had to say.

Ben Roethlisberger will be Playing in 2021-2022 NFL Season

Roethlisberger has been playing for the Steelers since he was drafted by them in 2004. Currently, he is 38 years old and has an impressive career winning two Super Bowls for the Steelers. Many people speculated that he would retire because of the pay cuts. Roethlisberger said in an interview with NFLonCBS “I have no plans on going anywhere and I feel like even if they decided to trade me I would probably just call it quits.”

Ben Roethlisberger wants to continue playing for the Steelers and is willing to get paid less. Covid-19 has lowered the revenue of many sports teams across the country. There is no telling the details of Roethlisberger’s contract with the Steeler as of now. All we can do right now is wait and see what changes Roethlisberger and the Steeler will make to their contract.
