Ben Roethlisberger working out with Blake Bortles

Ben Roethlisberger working out with Blake Bortles

The likely-to-be-highly-drafted Bortles and Roethlisberger share an agent. Not sure if this is out there, but Blake Bortles and Ben Roethlisberger have worked together some during the pre-draft process. — Josh Norris (@JoshNorris) April 7, 2014 We have confirmation. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is working out. Sure, it's with a future opponent, 2014 draft prospect Blake Bortles, and it's probably not exactly Rocky in Russia, but he's working out. Bortles has received his share of comparisons to the similarly built Roethlisberger, although it doesn't seem like he has the...

2014 NFL mock draft: Version 4.0 brings surprises

Kansas City will have ample options at No. 23 overall. The question is which way is John Dorsey leaning Incredibly, the 2014 NFL Draft is only a little more than a month away. With that said, here is my latest mock draft. Give it a read and then kill me in the comments. 1. Houston Texans - Blake Bortles - QB - Central Florida Bortles is the most polished product of the quarterback class. He has the size of Ben Roethlisberger and can make all the throws. 2. St. Louis Rams - Greg Robinson - OT - Auburn Robinson is the best offensive lineman in the draft. He plays with a nasty attitude and...

Future of the Steelers: Breaking down contracts by position over the next few seasons

Starting with the quarterback position, the Steelers' contract situations with those players is set through the next two years, barring extensions. But the contract of Big Ben still looms on the horizon. Discounting their 2014 draft picks and prospective undrafted players, the Pittsburgh Steelers have just 27 players signed past this season. And six were selected during last year's NFL Draft. PITTSBURGH -- The Steelers depth at quarterback is set for the near future, at least, as starter Ben Roethlisberger, backup Bruce Gradkowski are signed through next season. And last year's rookie,...

BFTB After Dark: March 27, 2014

"After Dark" is BFTB's nightly open thread for the community to talk about anything and everything. Hey, everyone's talking about Johnny Manziel! Here's my take on Johnny Football: He's going to be fun. He's going to be good. He's probably not going to last very long. That being said, he's basically a smaller version of Ben Roethlisberger, and that big dope has two Super Bowl rings. If I'm the Texans, Jaguars, or Browns, I am definitely drafting Manziel in the first round.

Kevin Colbert's proof will be in the pudding

Whether Ben Roethlisberger actually told him to draft a tall receiver isn't the point. What the Steelers do moving forward will tell us everything we need to know. Kevin Colbert said Ben Roesthlisberger didn't tell him to draft a tall receiver.But what's transpired within the team recently begs otherwise. Regardless of whether Roethlisberger said that or not, the proof is and will be in the pudding. This past month, the Steelers watched Emmanuel Sanders find greener pastures in Denver. Last week they lost Jerricho Cotchery to the Panthers. Pittsburgh did sign free agent Lance Moore but the...

Kevin Colbert said Ben Roethlisberger has not asked him to sign or draft a tall receiver

Whether Colbert is being 100 percent honest with that response is another matter, but at the very least, the Steelers general manager toed the company line when asked about it Monday. Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert addressed the tall elephant in the room. Says Colbert, as transcribed by Tribune-Review reporter Alan Robinson, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has never asked him to draft or sign a "tall" wide receiver. Straight from Robinson's question to Colbert's response: Q: Has Ben (Roethlisberger) ever come to you and asked for a tall receiver tan (sic) than a shorter...
