It is something we knew would come, but we also hoped it would be accompanied by another Lombardi trophy. But as I have mentioned in a rant, or three, the Pittsburgh Steelers are at a crossroads in terms of the future of this franchise. At stake is the possibility of keeping more of the nucleus of the team together by cutting the Hall of Fame quarterback.
Ben Roethlisberger is set to make $40 plus million in 2021, and if Ben is cut $19 plus million in cap space is gained. I’m not saying it is an easy decision, because Ben has meant plenty to this organization and to the fan base, but the question needs to be asked. Let’s not forget how Troy Polamalu was once pushed into retirement?
Time to get to some burning questions...
Would Art Rooney ll and co. do the unthinkable and nudge Ben Roethlisberger into retirement?
There is also the possibility that Ben Roethlisberger decides he has played his last game for the Black and Gold and hangs up his cleats and helmet.
Do you believe Ben walks away on his own and at this point and time what percentage would you give this scenario?
Then there is scenario number three where Ben decides to come back and play out the remainder of his contract.
Would you be on board if Ben wanted to finish out the remainder of his contract for one more run? Is one more run even a legit possibility?
