2. Is it time to find Ben Roethlisberger’s replacement?
Believe it or not, the clock is ticking on Ben Roethlisberger’s time in the NFL. He’s proven to still have the ability to take the Steelers to the AFC Playoffs, but it’s clear the team’s 35-year-old quarterback is starting to wear down a bit. With that said, is this finally the offseason where Pittsburgh finds their replacement for the two-time Super Bowl winner?
In years past, it looked as though Pittsburgh was preparing for their veteran quarterback to finally retire, but as it turns out, there’s no way Landry Jones is the long-term option for this Steelers franchise. The team’s front-office even drafted Joshua Dobbs out of Tennessee last season, but I’m not entirely sure he’s who the team envisions as their future either.
Nevertheless, with a crazy talented free agent class of quarterbacks, and another solid group of collegiate quarterbacks entering the 2018 NFL Draft, it might not be a bad idea for the Steelers to make a move.
This offense is loaded with talent, but it’s clear Roethlisberger isn’t hitting the big-throws he’s used to. Still, I’m not saying this quarterback would come right in and replace Roethlisberger in 2018; however, he would have the keys to this team’s future.
