PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has signed a new contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Roethlisberger led the Steelers to a Super Bowl victory two years ago, and was the 11th overall pick in the 2004 draft. He has started in all four seasons with the team.
Roethlisberger threw 32 touchdown passes with only 11 interceptions in leading the Steelers to the playoffs this past season, bouncing back from a 2006 season marred by a motorcycle accident and an appendectomy.
ESPN.com reported the deal as $102 million over eight years.
