The Pittsburgh Steelers now enter an offseason filled with questions. One of the questions on most fans’ minds is the future of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger hinted at retirement after losing in the 2016 AFC Championship game, but after the team’s divisional round loss to the Jaguars Sunday, he told Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette he plans on returning.

Roethlisberger returning is a huge factor in the team’s future plans, and certainly in how they will enter the NFL Draft; however, it doesn’t answer questions about some of the other stars, and one offensive coordinator, on the team heading into next season.
Will the team look for a quarterback in the upcoming NFL Draft? Will the team try and keep the core nucleus on offense together as long as possible by paying Le’Veon Bell big money this offseason? A lot of questions to be answered, but with Roethlisberger planning on returning, you can cross one big question off the lengthy list.
