Ben Roethlisberger's new deal with the Steelers will average well north of $30 million per year for 2020-21, placing him in the top-three highest paid quarterbacks for those two years, a source told ESPN. Roethlisberger's three-year extension, which the team announced Wednesday, includes Roethlisberger's $12 million salary in 2019 from his previous deal. The $30-plus-million average is the new money that factors into 2020-21, though much of that will be paid out in a signing bonus.

Steelers are giving Ben Roethlisberger a new two-year contract extension, to go along with the one year he had left, tying him to Pittsburgh through the 2021 season, per source. With Roethlisberger's new extension, that should almost assure that he starts and finishes his NFL career all in Pittsburgh.

A source said Ben Roethlisberger's contract talks with the Steelers are ‘moving in the right direction' after a slower period coming out of free agency. ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter first reported the team is working hard to complete a deal before the draft. Both sides would like to enter the post-draft offseason without this as a concern, and the Steelers could clear cap space in case they want to make a draft-day trade to bolster the roster.

Steelers working hard to complete a contract extension for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger before Thursday night's NFL draft begins, per sources. The 37-year-old Roethlisberger is scheduled to be headed into the final year of his contract, but Pitt wants to retain him well beyond.

Combing through the cornerback draft class in case the Steelers look for coverage help in round one — most NFL evaluators I spoke to called Washington's Byron Murphy the best corner available. However, some believe Greedy Williams could go first because of natural athleticism despite work ethic concerns.
