Ben Roethlisberger retiring? Uncertain 'if there’s going to be a next season' (Shutdown Corner)

Just two days after a humbling loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC championship, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger gave some veiled hints about his future … and Steelers fans might want to start getting nervous. “I’m going to take this offseason to evaluate, to consider all options,” Roethlisberger told Pittsburgh’s ‘Cook and Poni Show’ on Tuesday. The followup question didn’t elicit any more clarity: “I’m going to take some time and evaluate with my family and just do a lot of praying about it and make sure it’s the right thing for me and my family.” That’s an answer, yes, if only because it’s not the outright declaration that yes, Roethlisberger will be under center in 2017.
