Steelers GM: Ben Roethlisberger has ‘3 to 4’ years left in tank

The Pittsburgh Steelers have one of the toughest quarterbacks in the NFL in Ben Roethlisberger. He knows how to get up after taking shots and keep going as well as leading his team to big wins.

Steelers’ general manager Kevin Colbert seems to believe that Roethlisberger will be sticking around for at least the next few years. He said that the quarterback is still very much in his prime.

Ben’s a franchise quarterback,” Colbert told ESPN.com. “There are a few that have two (or more Super Bowls since 2004), but he’s one of those few. We’re very fortunate.

“We still have, you know, we think three to four more good years in his prime. We’re excited to see what he can do in that time period and what we can do to help him be successful.”

During his career with the Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger has recorded nearly 43,000 yards and 272 touchdowns. He has also led the Steelers to three Super Bowl appearances and two Lombardi Trophies.

After the way he was able to get back up after getting knocked around in the 2015 season, I think it is pretty safe to say that he has just a little while longer left on the football field.
