Cowher asked if Roethlisberger if he will retire a Steelers like Hines Ward and Troy Polamalu.

“I have no plans of going anywhere and I feel like even if they decided to trade me, I would probably just call it quits,” said Roethlisberger. “This is home, I don’t know anything but bleeding black and gold.”

Roethlisberger is in his 17th season in the NFL.
