Whether Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger can reach an agreement that will lead to the team that will bring him back this season remains to be seen. But they are discussing it.
The president of Roethlisberger and Steelers Art Rooney II met today, according to Gary Dulac of Pittsburgh after a newspaper.
According to the report, the meeting went well.
Steelers said Roethlisberger would not return under his current contract because they could not afford the huge $ 41.25 million in salary for 2021. Roethlisberger said he was willing to cut wages to stay in Pittsburgh, but This does not necessarily mean that he will take the pay cut as steeply as what the Steelers want to take.
So only time will tell if Steelers and Roethlisberger can reach an agreement that will lead Roethlisberger to return for the 18th season in Pittsburgh.
