It appears as though Ben Roethlisberger’s NFL career is drawing to a close with the Pittsburgh Steelers QB seemingly on the verge of retiring after this season.

Is Ben Roethlisberger going to retire this year?

There have been a lot questions about whether Roethlisberger will retire after the season.

Roethlisberger has played for the Steelers for 18 years, starting 245 games in that time.

As it stands entering Week 17, he has never been on a team that has had a losing season.

While wins are not solely a QB stat, it is impressive that the Steelers QB has managed to play that long and his team has never to this point gone below .500.

If he maintains that through the end of the season, that alone could be reason enough for Roethlisberger to retire.

Roethlisberger will have to wait five years after his retirement to be eligible, but there is little doubt he will be enshrined in the Hall of Fame when the opportunity arises.

Unless Tom Brady decides to retire this year, there will likely be no other major QB eligible to be voted in at the same time as Roethlisberger.
