Reports surfaced on Sunday morning that the Pittsburgh Steelers expect quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to seek a trade in the offseason, as he becomes increasingly frustrated with the direction the team is moving.
The Steelers are ready to enter rebuilding mode, so it would only make sense for the team to explore those trade options in order to expedite the rebuilding process and take advantage of the strong quarterback class that will be present in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Offensive coordinator Todd Haley and Roethlisberger have never had the greatest relationship and, with the team struggling, it is likely that they will be cleaning house and heading in a new direction moving forward.
Who are some of the teams that could make a move for Roethlisberger in the offseason if the Steelers do in fact shop him? Let’s take a look.
