This offseason, almost all of the news Pittsburgh Steelers fans have heard about Ben Roethlisberger is almost always negative. Players, both current and former, bashing the quarterback as a teammate and leader left and right.
Roethlisberger has wisely stayed silent throughout the madness, but the best news surrounding No. 7, at least for the vast fan base, is the report Roethlisberger and his weekly radio show with 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh will be ending their relationship this season.

Roethlisberger is hoping that it helps his standing with teammates.
Per Matt Verderame, Roethlisberger is hopeful him cutting the proverbial chord on his show will help improve his standing with teammates. I would think so considering Roethlisberger has used the platform to publicly criticize teammates, and coaches, in the past.
However, if this report is true it at last shows a willingness of Roethlisberger to change his past behaviors for the betterment of the team. It might be a small change, but a big change when it comes to the amount of drama and turmoil which was caused by the show.
