Surprise, surprise, Ben Roethlisberger will not retire.
The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback announced via Twitter that he informed the team he's looking forward to playing his 14th NFL season. "Steeler Nation will get my absolute best," he wrote.
After a playoff loss to the New England Patriots, Roethlisberger said he was contemplating retirement, noting he wanted to "evaluate" all his options.
It's fair for a 34-year-old to think about the future and spending more time with his family, especially after a playoff loss, the story said. But it didn't seem believable Big Ben would walk away with so much left in the tank on a team with enough talent to reach a Super Bowl, especially on offense.
