    Steelers sign Ben Roethlisberger to new contract

    There’s no word on the value or structure of the contract. The Steelers had made clear that Roethlisberger wouldn’t be back if he didn’t reduce his 2021 salary cap number from the $41.25 million it was scheduled to be, but it wasn’t clear whether Roethlisberger would be taking a pay cut, or merely restructuring his contract to reduce his cap hit this year but getting more money that would increase his cap hit in future years.
    What is clear is that Roethlisberger will be running it back in Pittsburgh for one more season, and the question of whether his career will go on after that has been pushed back to 2022.

    BUFFALO was also active signing veteran free agents from other teams: quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (Bears), wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders (Saints) and Brandon Powell (Falcons), tight end Jake Hollister (Seahawks), running back Matt Breida (Dolphins), offensive tackles Bobby Hart (Bengals) and Jamil Douglas (Titans), guard Forrest Lamp (Chargers), defensive end Efe Obada (Panthers), linebackers Tyrell Adams (Texans) and Marquel Lee (Raiders) and punter Matt Haack (Dolphins).

    The Bills’ current roster consists of four quarterbacks, five tight ends, six running backs, 10 wide receivers, 12 offensive linemen, four safeties, six defensive tackles (including Star Lotulelei, who opted out of last season due to Covid concerns), six cornerbacks, seven defensive ends, eight linebackers and three specialists.

    Helps the team out a lot, but I doubt he makes through the year.
