Just see this small tidbit about the Ben situation in insider's Mike Sando' Blog.
""I’ve heard that all year, like quietly that this is his last year and they are going to move on, that they don’t like some of the personal stuff with him off the field," one general manager said after the Roethlisberger story broke last week. "I don’t know enough about him, but I think they might be looking to move on. This is a good year for quarterbacks in the draft. It looks like there are going to be 5-6 guys that, depending on what you are looking for, could have some appeal."
I rather the GM be named, but even without being named if what he said is true it surprises me. I can understand Ben being tire of dealing with the lack of an offensive line and with an OC he doesn't like, but I wouldn't understand why the team would want to unload him. It says because of some of the personal stuff, but I don't get that as Ben hasn't been causing any problems that I have heard of in some time now.
