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.
