Mike Tomlin is 'open' to James Harrison returning to Pittsburgh Steelers

It shouldn't be a surprise that within seconds of the Pittsburgh Steelers' loss to the New England Patriots in the January 22 AFC Championship game, fans were already out on social media calling for the coach of 10 years to be fired.

Just two days after a humbling loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC championship, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger gave some veiled hints about his future ... and Steelers fans might want to start getting nervous.

As a general philosophy, Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin treats each individual season as its own entity, with no direct line from one to the next.

"To consider health, and family and things like that and just kind of take some time away to evaluate next season, if there's going to be a next season". "But we were pleased with what he was able to do to and provide us and we're open to that discussion for sure". It also might have been the last game of Big Ben's career.

Who knew football and that soap opera could have gone so well together in bringing me back to my youth? His return or potentially not returning will weigh heavily in our planning. I'm not alarmed by that process. "We'll plan and react accordingly".

"We haven't met yet", said Tomlin. "I was talking to my wife about it last night and I've talked to my agent about it and [to] Coach [Mike Tomlin, 44] about it". A few years ago we recounted all the various injuries that Roethlisberger had suffered, and they have continued, including the knee injury at Miami this year.

Thus, when the 34-year-old quarterback talks about retiring, the first instinct is to take the news with a grain of salt. Perhaps this is just end-of-season frustration, or perhaps there's more to it. "I think when you look at the journey that is the season, I think that just about every guy down there is dealing with and managing something in an effort to stay on the grass". He led the team to Super Bowl wins in the 2005 and 2008 seasons and has been one of the NFL's more consistent passers in that time. Earlier this season, Roethlisberger said that physical training camp practices were leading to injuries to his offensive lineman.

Roethlisberger's extension in 2015 came with a salary of almost $18 million in 2016 and $12 million each of the next three seasons. While it'd be a shock if he walks away this year, he'd hardly be the first or last to leave the National Football League with plenty left in the tank.

Based on that contract breakdown, Roethlisberger would be leaving upwards of $46 million on the table should he retire.
