Steelers to run more no-huddle offense
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Steelers ran at least 15 no-huddle plays in each of their final nine games, a stretch in which they went 6-3 and averaged more than 10 points more than in the first seven games, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. The team is spending a lot of time on the no-huddle during OTAs and plans to use it more in 2014.

"I think it's something that we realized where we can be and what we did last year, and where we were successful, so I think we'll use it more," quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told the paper. 

"I don't want to call it our base offense,” Roethlisberger added, "but I think you'll see more of it, so it was more important for us to get it in early and often."

According to the report, the Steelers used the no-huddle on 23 percent of their plays last year. Roethlisberger hit 102 of 163 passes for 1,221 yards and 10 touchdowns out of the no-huddle.

Ben Roethlisberger likes continuity up front
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger finished last season strong as the team used the no-huddle frequently. He told the team's website he's excited about an offensive line that returns every starter and gets Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey back from a torn ACL. 

"That’s a big part of being able to run the no-huddle because those guys are up there and they’re comfortable, they’re familiar," Roethlisberger said. "They’ve got another offseason in training of continuity and learning from each other. I tell them before each game that they are what is going to drive this team and this offense. As long as they stay healthy and can play every game we’ll be good."

Big Ben aims to play 5-7 more years
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who just turned 32, said he's not nearing the end of his career. "I feel like I'm in great shape," Roethlisberger said on 93.7 The Fan. "I think I can get five, six, seven more years out of this arm and these legs."

Roethlisberger played every snap last season, throwing for 4,261 yards and 28 touchdowns against 14 interceptions.

Steelers might not address Big Ben's contract this offseason
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Steelers traditionally address their quarterbacks' contracts two years out, but general manager Kevin Colbert said that might not be the case with Ben Roethlisberger. Big Ben is set to make $12 million this year and $11 million in 2015. His deal carries cap hits of nearly $18.9 million and $18.3 million.

“We'll get through free agency, get through the draft and see where we are,” Colbert said, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “Traditionally we have done quarterbacks (contracts) two years out, but as (team president) Art (Rooney) stated, we may or may not be in a position to do something this summer.”

The Steelers won't be able to lower Roethlisberger's cap impact unless they sign him to a long-term extension. He turned 32 this month.

GM: Let's keep Ben Roethlisberger for a while
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said Wednesday the team wants quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to spend his entire career in Pittsburgh, reports ESPN. 

"It's unanimous that we want Ben to be a Steeler for the rest of his career," Colbert said on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh. "There's nobody that I'd rather have or the franchise would rather have than Ben. He's won for us, there's still a lot of tread of the tires. We feel good about where he is, we feel great about how he finished last year and we're looking to build off of that."

Roethlisberger's contract has two years left. The Steelers haven't indicated that they are in a hurry to negotiate a new deal with Roethlisberger, who will have a cap hit of just under $18.9 million in 2014, but they have made it clear that one will get done.
