It's encouraging news.

Aside from replacing Favre in Green Bay, most every other move for Big Ben would involve more money but lesser teams, unless you catch lightning in a bottle (Warner, Rypien).

If Ben stays, he had better hope that the Steelers are able to upgrade.  History shows that QB's tend to win their SB's in bunches.  Unitas was probably closest to winning it all 10-12 years apart.

"The quarterback position is one position we've addressed two years prior to free agency," Steelers director of football operations Kevin Colbert said. "Obviously, Ben has done some great things for our organization. We expect him to accomplish even greater things moving forward.
I wish they'd address a few other positions two years in advance, rather than continually drafting for need early.

Roethlisberger is scheduled to earn $1,356,500 in 2008 and $1,707,000 in 2009 in base salary. He is due bonuses of $2.95 million in 2008 and $8 million in 2009.
Looks like one of those balloon payment mortgages.  That $8MM bonus will motivate the front office to get a deal done.

Ben might be the exception to the rule since he won his so early on in his career.  I hope that is the case anyway...
