Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that the Oakland Raiders have been in talks with the Pittsburgh Steelers about the services of QB Ben Roethlisberger.
“Steelers have been in contact w/ Raiders regarding Big Ben trade. Might be only real option. More on NFLN and NFL.com,” he tweets.
The Raiders might be the only team that would realistically trade for Big Ben at this point. The Steelers are in a bad position in that his trade value has taken a huge hit, but he’s still a two-time Super Bowl Champ.
You’d have to think that the Steelers would want the #8-overall pick in the draft at least. Another site mentioned that and Nnamdi Asomugha, but that seems like quite a haul.
