Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been in the news recently regarding his contract situation.
The Steelers and Roethlisberger have come to an agreement to wait until the end of the season to resume contract talks, but Roethlisberger has to be feeling pretty good about what befell his AFC North contemporary, Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton.
Yes, the “Red Rocket” himself.
Early Monday morning, Dalton got paid to the tune of $115M
This has senior Steelers writer for triblive.com Alan Robinson thinking that Roethlisberger now has some leverage.

Pump the brakes… let’s not go around comparing Dalton to Roethlisberger any time soon (see: Dalton’s playoff record).
Robinson does raise a valid point: Expect Roethlisberger to get his in the offseason.
And, let’s face it, he deserves it.
