Analysis: The team announced the deal Friday on Twitter without giving details. The move keeps the two-time Super Bowl winner in Pittsburgh beyond a previous deal that was set to expire after the 2015 season. The 33-year-old cornerstone of the franchise threw for 4,952 yards last season, breaking his own team record and tying with Drew Brees for the most yards passing in 2014. Roethlisberger also had 32 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Roethlisberger is about to enter the final season of an eight-year deal he signed in 2008.
Analysis: Colbert believes Roethlisberger, who tied with Drew Brees for the most yards passing in the league last season, can still improve as young talents like Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown continue to grow into the offense. Roethlisberger turns 33 next month. Colbert pointed to the play of Peyton Manning and Tom Brady as proof elite quarterbacks can play at a high level deep into their 30s.
