The Pittsburgh Steelers and veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger are holding contract extension talks, according to Aditi Kinkhabwala of the NFL Network.
Roethlisberger, 37, has continued to post impressive counting stats, registering 5,129 passing yards, 34 touchdowns and 16 interceptions in 2018 while completing 67 percent of his passes.
While those were big numbers, Roethlisberger didn't grade out particularly well at Pro Football Focus, where he received a mark of 78.2 (16th among quarterbacks). While he set a career high in yards and touchdowns, he also set a career high in attempts, somewhat inflating those numbers.
Additionally, his 16 interceptions tied for the second-worst mark of his career, and his 11.3 yards per completion ranks as the worst.
