The Pittsburgh Steelers and QB Ben Roethlisberger will likely approach a contract extension this offseason with Roethlisberger having two years left on his current contract. Roethlisberger could ask for more than $20 million a year in a new deal. "They could always structure the deal so Roethlisberger wouldn't count as much against the cap next year as he would if they didn't sign him to a new deal," the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac pointed out. "But, based on the Joe Flacco deal, the price of paying a quarterback, especially one with two Super Bowls victories, has gone way up. At a minimum, Roethlisberger is going to want $75 million over three years. And do the Steelers want to pay that?"
