by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

The Steelers are taking care of their quarterback once again. 

On Friday, Pittsburgh announced that it has locked up Ben Roethlisberger to a five-year contract extension. The financial details of the deal were not disclosed by the team.

"It's home. It's family," Roethlisberger said. "As much as my wife and kids are family, so is the Rooney family and my team and coaches."

Roethlisberger was selected in the first round of the 2004 draft and has been the organization's quarterback since. In his 11-year career, Roethlisberger has thrown for 39,057 yards, 251 yards and 131 interceptions.

Roethlisberger has led the Steelers to three Super Bowl appearances and has won two — Super bowl XL and Super Bowl XLIII.

The Steelers announced they've begun preliminary negotiations on a contract extension with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who's owed $11.6 million in 2015, the final year of his deal.

Rooney on Big Ben extension: 'The sooner the better'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Steelers co-owner Art Rooney II sounds eager to negotiate a contract extension with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who's owed $11.6 million next season in the final year of his deal.

“Obviously we would like to get it done this offseason, and I think it’s fair to say the sooner the better,” Rooney told the team's website, “but I’m not going to put any particular time frame on these things.

"It’s kind of hard to predict how long it takes to get something done, but we certainly want to get something done this offseason. That’s for sure. It takes two to tango when it comes to contract negotiations. I’m not expecting a problem, but again, I hate to put predictions on those kinds of things.”

Roethlisberger is coming off his best season. He threw for 4,952 yards and 32 touchdowns with nine interceptions.

“I will take that problem,” Rooney said, referring to the higher cost of an extension now. “I’m happy to have a player who had a great year. I would rather have that situation than the reverse. I’m not complaining about it. It is what it is. We will just have to deal with the circumstances as they present themselves in this offseason.”
