It remains to be seen if the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger can come to a deal that will result in the team bringing him back this season. But they are discussing it.
Roethlisberger and Steelers president Art Rooney II met today, according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The meeting went well, according to the report.
The Steelers have said that Roethlisberger will not return to his current contract because they cannot afford his huge salary cap of $ 41.25 million for 2021. Roethlisberger has said he is willing to take a pay cut to stay in Pittsburgh, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that. it means he’ll take a pay cut as high as the one the Steelers want him to take.
So only time will tell if the Steelers and Roethlisberger can reach a deal that will result in Roethlisberger returning for an 18 season in Pittsburgh.
