Default Roethlisberger deal is officially* done

No "close to" or false reports from some website with the same credibility as some of the yahoo's at ESPN....

Steelers, Roethlisberger reach deal
By The Tribune-Review
Monday, March 3, 2008

The Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger have reached an agreement on a six-year contract extension worth $102 million, including over $36 million guaranteed.

Roethlisberger is now tied to the Steelers for the next eight seasons.

A press conference to announce the deal will be held this afternoon.

this will probably get locked since it has already been posted in "deal almost done" but its nice to have its own title where it says it is official so i hope not.....

we had to break the bank on him but this was the one guy we knew we had to do it with.

That's what I am figuring. Sifting through the "He's close", "It's almost done", "So and so is supposedly reporting" posts/threads is not exactly my idea of a fun time.

That is a HUGE contract. Just another reason why Faneca is going to be wearing a Jets jersey this upcoming season and rightfully so.

But wow.

Nope, not closing it. Besides, this news is significant enough to have posts about it in two different threads.

This contract will seem like a bargain in 3-4 years.

WOW

I hope he keeps himself grounded and doesn't become a "millionaire" QB with too big a head.

Keep yourself in the film room Ben, earn your money, you still owe ME 3 rings.

The extension is for 6 years, and he still has 2 years remaining on his current deal, so we have him locked up for the next 8 years.
