The 2019 NFL Draft is in the rear view mirror, and one news story which was theoretically swept under the rug during the process was Ben Roethlisberger’s brand new contract. The deal was done on the day before the draft, and once the selection process started everyone seemingly forgot about Roethlisberger’s shiny new contract.
With the details of his contract finally released, many fans are stunned to see how much he will be counting towards the salary cap starting next year. Oh, you haven’t heard how much? Try over $30 million a year!
What? Did you think Roethlisberger would give the Steelers a hometown discount?
This is where the newest BTSC podcast “Yeah, I Said It” comes in. My co-host on ‘The Standard is the Standard’, Lance Williams, talks about why only the foolish fans thought Roethlisberger would take less on his final NFL contract to appease the organization/fan base.
Lance is the perfect man for the job, and delivers the goods in the latest show.
