Steelers GM admits team needs to prepare for Ben Roethlisberger's retirement

Steelers GM admits team needs to prepare for Ben Roethlisberger's retirement”

While players often speak of retirement in vague terms as they maneuver for more money, the Steelers apparently are beginning to take him seriously.

With Roethlisberger a healthy scratch and Pittsburgh backup Landry Jones dealing with injury, it's Dobbs' chance to show what he can do with the first-team offense as his supporting cast.

"Someone else's misfortune is another's opportunity", Tomlin said. "I see much more fire than I do resignation". "But like a lot of things, we won't know until we get him in the stadium".

A number of Steelers starters, however, have been nagged by injuries and held out of practice, including center Maurkice Pouncey (leg), tackle Alejandro Villanueva (concussion symptoms), linebackers Ryan Shazier and Bud Dupree, cornerback Artie Burns and safety Mike Mitchell. According to most reports, Hunter is absolutely killing it in training camp.

"There is urgency", Tomlin said. "Guys need to get on the field". We don't seek comfort because of our continuity in that area.

"I am just interested in his game-day demeanor, his ability to communicate through circumstances", Tomlin said, "not only with his fellow players, but also with coaches as well". The Steelers will be cautious with their 35-year-old quarterback, who's missed six games in the last two years. But Ben has had a great career to this point.

Among the likely tough cuts to come during this month, will be at receiver.

While Dobbs will get the start, Houston will definitely get a good look as well. "He seems to be able to learn from his mistakes, which is good".

"It makes it hard because you want make sure you give everyone a chance to show what they are capable of". "I like what the four games provides us from that perspective". One such mind belongs to DeAngelo Williams, Bell's teammate for the last two seasons, who tweeted a retort to Colbert, asking him to "Please explain to me how [it hurts Bell] because when he gets back he will be the freshest body out there with his skillset #wrong". I know he's excited. This process that is team development, division of labor and team building, I just have a lot of respect for it and appreciation for it.

Although Roethlisberger will not commit to playing beyond his 14th season, Colbert has seen no lack of enthusiasm for the game from him.
