Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger Named Candidate For Jets

PITTSFIELD -- Ben Roethlisberger hasn't played in the NFL for a full season, but the Pittsburgh Steelers star has been named a "wildcard" to come back in 2023.

Since Aaron Rodgers left the New York Jets just four plays into the season, they are looking for a senior to play behind Zach Wilson.

They are doing their research on a few senior free agents, but if they think outside the box, a former Steeler could be the answer. 

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN thinks that Roethlisberger is a "wildcard" option who could get the job and go back to the NFL.

Retired quarterbacks like Ben Roethlisberger, Tom Brady, and—wait for it—Blake Bortles are wild cards," writes Fowler. 

Bortles went to the 2017 AFC Championship Game in Jacksonville with now-Jets playcaller Nathaniel Hackett as his offensive coordinator."
