Roethlisberger And Steelers Looking To Renegotiate Contract

The Steelers and representatives for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger have worked on renegotiating the two-time Super Bowl champion’s contract, and an agreement could come by the end week.

Roethlisberger is scheduled to carry a prohibitive cap figure of $19.595 million in 2013, and the Steelers are working through tricky waters in regard to the salary cap, which is expected to land between $122 million and $123 million for this season.

The Steelers, as it stands right now, have 10 players accounting for just over $100 million in cap space, and linebacker James Harrison (2013 cap hit: $10.035 million) is one player the team has been trying to make a decision on.

At this point, the expectation is that Roethlisberger’s deal will be renegotiated, not extended. The Steelers’ precedent has been to extend quarterbacks with two years left on their contracts, and that would mean Roethlisberger could get a new deal next offseason.
