Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger had another tremendous season in 2017. At the age of 35(turned 36 in March), Roethlisberger has proven that he has a lot left in the tank after throwing for 4251 yards and 28 touchdowns.
Even in a playoff loss to the Jaguars last season, “Big Ben” was impressive as he threw for 469 yards and five touchdowns.
There has been a lot of speculation about how much longer Roethlisberger will play. The Steelers did select QB Mason Rudolph in the third round of this year’s draft. However, Roethlisberger says he will take it year by year.
“I’m healthy, and just lots of prayers and spending time with family. I’m still going to take it one year at a time but just feeling like what you have left in the tank,” Roethlisberger told ESPN in May.
With all that the Steelers have on offense, expect Roethlisberger to have another big-time season, and according to his former teammate Santonio Holmes, if Roethlisberger can stay injury free, he will continue to put up great numbers.
“As long as he stays healthy, he’s going to produce,” Holmes recently told goforitradio.com.
We recently caught up Holmes in Pittsburgh, and he discussed his catch in Super Bowl 43, Steelers prospects for 2018, and how many more years Roethlisberger could play in the NFL.
