Art Rooney on Ben Roethlisberger trade rumors: “It’s ridiculous”

Steelers owner  Art Rooney II was asked about the rumors that they’re looking to trade Ben Roethlisberger.

“It’s ridiculous,” Art Rooney II said Sunday, via Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Roethlisberger decided to squash the rumors again.

“There’s no truth to this,” Roethlisberger. “I mean none.  On a scale of 1 to 10, it’s like a minus-1 million.  It’s crazy, honestly.”

Big Ben then took at shot at Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

“False and false,” Roethlisberger said. “Did Ian do that one?  Surprise, surprise.”

I think it’s pretty safe to say that someone clearly made up the report that Roethlisberger wants to be traded.
