Steelers plan to keep Big Ben

The Steelers are not actively trying to trade suspended quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and intend to keep him and help him get his life and career back on track in Pittsburgh, the Post-Gazette has learned.

Despite national reports that they have been actively calling other National Football League teams seeking to deal their two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback, the Steelers are planning to move forward with Roethlisberger, 28, once he completes the terms of the six-game suspension handed down Thursday by commissioner Roger Goodell.

At least two NFL coaches and general managers have said they have not been contacted by the Steelers, nor are they aware of other teams being contacted specifically about a draft-day trade involving Roethlisberger.
