Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert indicated Sunday that Ben Roethlisberger’s career is winding down.
Pittsburgh has reportedly made the extension or renegotiation of the 37-year-old quarterback’s contract a priority this offseason.
Colbert said that Roethlisberger’s next deal is “probably his last” as an NFL player, according to NFL Network.

The contract talks are “still ongoing,” Colbert said.
Roethlisberger has spent the entirety of his 15-year career in Pittsburgh and became a two-time Super Bowl champion in that span.
The Steelers finished 2018 at 9-6-1 and missed the postseason. Roethlisberger led the league in passing yards, totaling 5,129 on the season.
