"It has always been a goal to play my entire career in Pittsburgh," Roethlisberger said in a statement. "This is home for me and my family, and we love this city. I am as excited to be a Steeler in Year 16 as I was when they drafted me. They will get my absolute best."
"Anytime you can kind of keep that core group, keep people together, the less turnover the better usually," Roethlisberger said. "So, from the top down I think that is important."
