Is Big Ben going to be someone else's problem?
April 21, 2010 - John Mehno
There are just rumors at this point.
But the rumors are strong that the Steelers have contacted all of the teams that hold the first 10 picks in the NFL draft to see if they're interested in trading for Ben Roethlisberger.
It appears the Steelers would like to move forward with someone else playing quarterback. However, this is not a Santonio Holmes situation where they're willing to give away a proven player just to get him off the team. Even with Roethlisberger's off-the-field baggage, he has value to teams looking to add a quarterback with two Super Bowl victories on his resume.
Even with his suspension set, there are still teams that would be willing to add Roethlisberger. Are they willing to meet the Steelers' price? The next 48 hours should be very interesting.
