Longtime Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has now made his return official, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Most NFL executives thought the six-time Pro Bowler would call it a career after a disappointing end to last season, but it seems Brady’s title in Tampa may have pushed Roethlisberger to want more.

Pittsburgh currently has their hands tied in terms of salary cap, so chances are that big Ben took a major discount here.
Can’t say we’re surprised to see the return of another quarterback practically in his 40s, right? These guys never want to retire. Anyway, Year 17, here he comes.
