Ben Roethlisberger is not in the business of grooming young quarterbacks.
Mens Riley Sheahan Jersey He told reporters Tuesday he wants to play another three to five years, health permitting, and 2018 third-round pick Mason Rudolph will be waiting a while before Nolan Arenado Womens Jersey taking over as Pittsburgh’s starting QB.

If he’s going to be their guy, that’s great, but in my perfect world it’s not going to be for a while, Roethlisberger said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Roethlisberger has been a modicum of health in his career, never playing fewer than 12 games in a season, and he said if things stay that way, he plans to run the offense for the better part of the next decade.
All of Rosen’s off-field headlines ultimately will put extra pressure on him, which is never good for a player. But if he can win with class in the NFL, it will help cure his past ills.
Until then, Rosen propping up his image as he launches his NFL career following a sputtering start will be quite the challenge.
The Eagles re-signed running back Darren Sproles in late April. They also have Jay Ajayi, Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood and Donnel Pumphrey on their roster.
Of all the 2018 rookie QBs, Rosen is the most pro-ready. He will challenge for the starting job, but money says the Cards will deal in Bradford as a stopgap. Given what happened when Glennon started over rookie Mitchell Trubisky in Chicago last season, consider the former Bear out of the race.
There’s no real future with McCown, who turns 39 on July 4. Bridgewater can’t be overlooked, but his health and his adjusting to a new offense might be hurdles. That gives Darnold a good chance to take the job right away with a good training camp.
