maybe this deal's more of a 6-year, let's renegotiate in 2014 type of thing?
I would say doubtful.

Roethlisberger will already be 34 in his last year of contract.  Even by generous estimates, he's still 2-3 years past his prime then.

I'm not worried about an extension- I just hope this contract doesn't hamper the team when he gets on into his mid-30's.


I agree that the Steelers did what needed to be done...but I am a bit uneasy over how long the contract is.

I don't care if Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy are black. Good for them. But that doesn't change the way I feel about them. The longer we keep looking at guys like Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith as "BLACK HEAD COACHES" as opposed to just "coaches" the longer race will continue to be a problem. --DoctorJohnnyFever

Bonii that are too big, or last longer than 36 hours, can cause serious health problems.

Geeeezzzzz-us...36 million in guarantees??

Wow.

I was hoping his '08 cap hit would go down.  With that kind of coin, I'd be happy if it just didn't go up.  Hopefully, he doesn't suffer from the Romo effect after inking this big deal.

Apparently, the market's pretty good for "game managers" this year.  

Now, Ben just needs to work on his QB sweep skills.

I am thrilled, a lot of coin to be tied up in one position, but good to know that we won't have to worry about the QB position for close to a decade. Now let's find some people to protect this man and start racking up some W's!!

Go Steelers!!!

Eddie B. says $25M in SB, hence $11M in other guarantees (roster, etc.).  But anyway, just over $3M per in SB.  Figure most or all of the $11M "other" comes late in that deal, say, the last 2 years...  And likewise, the $66M salary averages $8.25M per, but comes backloaded, for a 2013 "let's see where we are with Ben at 31" kinda thang.

Some of that $11M be accounted for by converting existing bonuses, I think.
