Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger will get contract extension after season

Pittsburgh Steelers President Art Rooney spoke about QB Ben Roethlisberger's contract situation saying "we intend on addressing Ben's contract situation after the season, so that we could address a number of players who were going into their last year in 2014. I think Ben understands that's our intention and the way we'd like to proceed. I think we had a good conversation." There were talks of extension when the Steelers signed center Maurkrice Pouncey back in June. Roethlisberger signed an eight-year, $102 million contract back in 2008, is scheduled to make $12 million this year and be a free agent after next season.

Fantasy Analysis:

It's a nice confidence boost by Rooney to show signs of locking Big Ben into a long-term contract. The Steelers offense is starting to come into form with RB Le'Veon Bell, WRs Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton and a healthy Heath Miller returning. Roethlisberger can be viewed as a shaky QB1 option.
