Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wants to continue playing next season and, barring a change of heart, intends to fulfill the terms of a contract that has one season remaining on it after this one, league sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter.
According to the story, sources around Roethlisberger believe the two-time Super Bowl champion is having too much fun and likes his team too much to walk away from it after the 2020 season. Who can blame Big Ben, with a young group of emerging receivers Ben could probably play a couple more years as long as the feelings are mutual.
PIT WR Diontae Johnson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs Browns
Johnson is still running as the best receiver for the Steelers, but his value this week takes a major hit with Mason Rudolph starting at quarterback this week. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising if Johnson is limited this week to keep him healthy for the playoffs. As it stands now, Johnson is a near-flex option against the Browns. He did not play in the first meeting against the Browns.
