  • Ben Roethlisberger talks on Pittsburgh radio that he's considering retirement.

    There’s a chance Ben Roethlisberger played his last game of his NFL career Sunday at Gillette Stadium.


    After the Patriots beat the Steelers 36-17 in the AFC championship, Roethlisberger appeared on 93-7 “The Fan” in Pittsburgh for his weekly radio interview on Tuesday and hinted there’s a chance he could retire.


    “I’m going to take this offseason to evaluate, to consider all options,” Roethlisberger said. “To consider health, and family and things like that and just kind of take some time away to evaluate next season.

    Roethlisberger just finished his 13th year in the league and will turn 35 years old in March.

    I could google it, but is he married, any children...?

      Ben married in 2011 and just had his 3rd kid this year.

        I hope he has fed her since the wedding.

          I think he is probably just sending a message to the organization. Things got a little weird there with A.B.'s Facebook live post. I'm sure he wants the team to go "all in" for a Super Bowl run next year.

            Guy takes a pounding. Maybe he's asking for a decent O lineman or two?

              This is stupid. He sounds like he is absolutely coming back, and his tone was that he was eventually thinking about it each year at the end of the season. Slow news day.

                Didn't a couple of his O line get Pro Bowl nods?

                  Yeah, you'd think some of them would have to be decent, considering how well Bell was doing.

                  Ben might be taking unnecessary hits by holding the ball a bit too long?

                    I'd estimate he has about $37 million sitting in his investment account.
                    He's got 3 years remaining on his contract.
                    This year he self reported concussions symptoms in a game which he admitted he never would have even considered a year or two earlier.
                    Guessing he's been considering the risks of turning into Mike Webster.

                      Sounds like a BUNCH of players are considering that.

                        After reading MMQB this morning it seems more like he wants coaching changes.

                        Why should he go through another year just to lose to a better coached team, it seems like he has the leverage to demand some changes especially in the defense.

                        Should Pittsburgh consider trading Ben before a bad marriage gets worse and what would he fetch in a trade?

                          I don't see anyway they trade him. They definitely need to upgrade the defense. I think management will talk to Tomlin about having a more disciplined team. They might only be a couple players away from a AFC championship next year.

                            The cap hit on trading him is $18.6 million.
                            It's silly to even think that's happening.

                              It's getting less by the minute....
