Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger won't commit to playing in 2017

Post-Gazette - [Full Article]

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said Tuesday he could not yet commit to returning to play another NFL season.

“I’m gonna take this offseason to evaluate, to consider all options, to consider health and family and things like that and just kind of take some time away to evaluate next season — if there’s gonna be a next season,” Roethlisberger said during his weekly radio show with 93.7 The Fan’s Ron Cook and Andrew Fillipponi.

Fantasy Impact:

It appears that Roethlisberger, who regularly plays up his injuries in order to get a reputation for being a tough guy, is going to follow the Brett Favre "will he, won't he" blueprint for the late stages of his career. Roethlisberger is 34, the Steelers are a perennial Super Bowl contender and he's under contract through 2019, so we're fully expecting him to play next season.

Scouting Report

AFC Championship at New England
Roethlisberger completed 20 of 31 passes for 224 yards, no touchdowns and an interception last week in Kansas City. And he also had two passes that would have been touchdowns broken up at the last second. His lone interception also came on a tipped pass at the goal line, so the Steelers are still throwing down near the goal line. He's going to have to be better than that this week and he knows it. Expect Big Ben to raise his game, but this is a team that is extremely intent on running the ball with Le'Veon Bell. Roethlisberger won't get shut out in the TD department this week, but the Steelers will keep on running.
