Ben Roethlisberger has made it clear that he wants to play at least another year for the Pittsburgh Steelers. But the Steelers have made it clear that they need Big Ben to make some salary adjustments in order to contend in 2021.

According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, there isn’t a whole lot of progress towards making that happen. Roethlisberger reportedly hasn’t even met with the Steelers about what they want to do.

The new league year begins in just over a month, and Roethlisberger will be do a significant bonus around then. He currently counts for over $41 million against the cap, and the Steelers are over $30 million above the cap per OverTheCap.

The Steelers will probably save some money with the retirement of Maurkice Pouncey today. But they’ll still be deep in the red in terms of salary cap if they don’t do something about Roethlisberger’s contract.
