Default Steelers, Big Ben reach deal on extension

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/7...l-on-extension


Ben Roethlisberger has received a belated birthday present from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

FOXSports.com has learned that the Steelers and Roethlisberger agreed today on a multiyear contact extension one day after the quarterback's 26th birthday.

An official announcement is expected this afternoon.

While details aren't yet available, Roethlisberger assuredly landed a lucrative deal that should place him among the NFL's highest-paid quarterbacks.

Roethlisberger had outplayed the rookie contract he signed as a 2004 first-round draft pick, leading Pittsburgh to a Super Bowl XL victory in just his second NFL season and an AFC North title in 2007.

Last year, Roethlisberger rebounded from a sub-par 2006 campaign by throwing for 32 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He excelled despite being sacked 47 times, the NFL's second-highest total behind Detroit's Jon Kitna (51).

Roethlisberger had two years remaining on his rookie contract. He was set to earn $1.4 million in base salary in 2008.

The Roethlisberger contract will probably be the biggest deal Pittsburgh makes this off-season. The Steelers are not big spenders in free agency, preferring to build their team through the draft.
