Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was on WDVE radio today and made it clear that he’s upset over the recent reports involving his work ethic.
“First and foremost, I don’t want to go anywhere,” Roethlisberger said via ProFootballTalk.com. “I want to be in Pittsburgh. I hope that’s very clear to everybody that I want to stay, my family wants to stay. We do not want to ask for a trade, we don’t want to go anywhere. I want to finish my career here. I’ve always said that, and I still feel firmly that way.”
Roethiserger did indicated someone within the Steelers front office could be spreading rumors.
“When someone is a source and they’re unnamed, they have an agenda,” Roethlisberger said. “And their agenda is not winning football games and not helping this team. Whoever that agenda is coming from, they’re not helping us, they’re hurting us.”
Big Ben doesn’t know how anyone would know how hard he’s working at home.
“First of all, how does anybody know what I’m doing at home,” he said, “when I’m watching film or I’m looking through my playbook at home, unless someone someone’s got cameras set up in my house and they’re spying on me? But then they’d see the truth that I am doing that stuff.”
