NFL 18 Ben Roethlisberger 'leaning towards' return in 2017

 Shortly after the end of the 2016 season, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger raised the possibility that he’d retire before the start of next season.

The reaction to Roethlisberger floating that notion was short on people who thought that it would amount to be more than a momentary contemplation in the wake of a frustrating loss in the AFC title game, but a couple of months have passed without Roethlisberger declaring his intent to play in 2017. It sounds like such a proclamation may be coming in the near future, however.

“I’m leaning towards it,” Roethlisberger said on Friday when asked about playing in 2017, via Dale Lolley of the Washington (PA) Observer-Reporter.

The Steelers re-signed Landry Jones, but General Manager Kevin Colbert said that the team will “absolutely” add a quarterback to the mix at some point. He made that comment when discussing the need to have a plan in place in the event Roethlisberger walked away this season, but raising the prospect of retirement should still be enough cause for the Steelers to think about the day when Big Ben won’t be under center.

eteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger spoke on his future as the man under center for the Steelers on Friday.

To no one's surprise, it looks like he'll be coming back.

Roethlisberger said he's "leaning towards it" -- it being returning to play for Pittsburgh in 2017 -- when speaking at Liberty University on Friday, per the Observer-Reporter (Washington, Pennsylvania).

Roethlisberger provided cause for concern at the beginning of the offseason, saying he was "going to take this offseason to evaluate, to consider all options." The 35-year-old quarterback, who's played through injuries seemingly more often than most quarterbacks in recent history, dealt with another in Pittsburgh's run to the AFC Championship Game, which ended in bitter defeat at the hands of New England. It's understandable for Roethlisberger to seriously consider his football mortality in 2017.

It's not all that believable, though, to think Roethlisberger would abruptly hang it up after his Steelers team put things together in the second half of the season, winning the AFC North and two playoff games before falling to the Patriots. The return of Antonio Brown on a new contract, a healthy Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant (who's awaiting reinstatement) has to make it even more difficult to consider retirement. And we can't forget the fact Pittsburgh doesn't really have much of a contingency plan for life without Roethlisberger beyond backup Landry Jones, who isn't inspiring much confidence.

There’s some good news on that front, as Roethlisberger indicated he was probably going to play while speaking at a men’s conference at Liberty University over the weekend.
