In case you hadn't already heard, Big Ben just got a brand new Big Ben-sized contract.
The Pittsburgh Steelers and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger have agreed to a new eight-year, $102 million contract.The contract, which includes more than $36 million in guarantees and is easily the largest in team history, places Roethlisberger among the game's highest-paid players.
Roethlisberger now joins Manning, Brett Favre, Carson Palmer, Donovan McNabb, the suspended Vick and the retired Drew Bledsoe in the $100 million quarterback club.
(Suck on that Tony Homo!) $102 million will guarantee Big Ben plenty of Patron and motorcycle helmets for years to come, but probably still not the respect he deserves from anyone outside the Pittsburgh city limits.
That said, let's talk about BEN ROETHLISBERGER'S HOT ASS IN GOLD SPANDEX UNTIL THE YEAR 2016!
The carpal tunnel is here to stay people - if you know what I'm saying. (And I think you do.)
