Ben Roethlisberger will return for 2017 season

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told the media he will return for the 2017 season.

Fantasy Impact

After contemplating retirement following January's loss to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, Roethlisberger announced Friday that he will return for his 14th NFL season in 2017. The 35-year-old signal caller, whose battled injuries throughout his career, could have the best arsenal of weapons at his disposal that he's ever played with in the previous 13 seasons. The Steelers retained both Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown this offseason, plus, Ladarius Green's health could finally be intact by training camp. Also, if Martavis Bryant's suspension is lifted, and its fully expected to be, Pittsburgh's offense could evolve into an even greater juggernaut. Currently, Roethlisberger is in the low-end QB1 conversation for the upcoming fantasy football campaign, but will likely move up a tier once Bryant is reinstated.
