    The Steelers signed quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to a new five-year contract, the team announced today. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    “We are excited to announce we have signed Ben Roethlisberger to a new five-year contract,” Steelers President Art Rooney II said. “Ben is one of the greatest quarterbacks in team history, and we are thrilled we were able to finalize a contract that will keep Ben with the Steelers through the 2019 season at least. We believe Ben is getting better each year, and we are looking forward to him continuing to lead us toward another Super Bowl championship.”

    Roethlisberger is entering his 12th season with the team in 2015 after originally being selected by Pittsburgh with the 11th overall pick in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft. In his 11 seasons, he has led the Steelers to five division championships and two Super Bowl victories in three appearances.

    I would think it's probably between $21M and $23M...which I'd be fine with.
