“Ben, we have to have him retire as a Steeler”

From Team President Art Rooney II’s interview with media members this week:


“What I would say about it is that we certainly expect Ben to be playing here beyond the current contract. When both sides are able to come together on an extension – I don’t know when that will be, and really it’s too early to say as far as if it’s this season or next – but there is no doubt we look at Ben as somebody who’s going to be here for the long-term. Ben, we have to have him retire as a Steeler. There’s not a doubt about that.”
