    Steelers expect Big Ben to ask for offseason trade

    • Ben Roethlisberger in anything other than black and gold, but he might not be a Pittsburgh Steeler forever.

      [​IMG]
      NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that Big Ben is "incredibly frustrated" with the direction of the franchise, according to Steelers sources. It's not just coordinator Todd Haley, but the entire offensive staff that has the two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback discouraged.

      Team sources expect Roethlisberger to ask the Steelers to explore a possible trade in the offseason, Rapoport was told. Pittsburgh fielded trade offers for Big Ben last offseason and the team expects to answer the phone again in 2014.

      Still, the Steelers have no intentions of trading Big Ben, per Rapoport, unless they can replace him another franchise passer.

      NFL Media columnist Michael Silver told NFL Network's "NFL GameDay Morning" that Roethlisberger's contract is an issue. Scheduled to make $12.1 million next season, his relatively low salary comes with a high cap number, so a restructuring is likely on the horizon if he sticks around.

      Silver was told Big Ben ideally wants to finish his career with the Steelers, but if Pittsburgh winds up shopping him, look for the Arizona Cardinals to come calling. Coach Bruce Arians is one of Roethlisberger's best friends and they worked wonders together in the Steel City.

      It would be stunning to see Roethlisberger play anywhere than Pittsburgh, but stranger things have happened. Just ask Peyton Manning.

    In order to beat a Franchise QB in Erin Rodgers, you need a franchise QB. However, it would be a bad idea for the Bears after trading so much for Cutler. We could get a good QB in the draft or trade for Mike Glennon if the Bucs pick up another QB in the draft. Emery liked him.

    He does not have too many years left. I don't see why we would want to do that. Cutler and McCown have been effective. I don't see Big Ben being head and shoulders above them at this point in his career. I may be wrong... the guy is a good QB, but I'd rather go for youth.

    Nope.

    Unless Emery drafts a franchise QB in the first round next year (which ain't gonna happen), Cutler is our quarterback! ;-)

    The Bears don't need Ben RapeTheBurger. We are going to have Smokin' Jay next year. We need to focus on getting our "D" better.

    I'd take him. I'd give up value for him. I like Cutler, but it's always a numbers game and in the end, Ben is still a 2x SB Winner.
