Breaking News: Ben Roethlisberger Could Be Traded by the Pittsburgh Steelers

ESPN's Adam Shefter reported at 11:35 this morning that the Pittsburgh Steelers are actively talking to teams about trying to get a top 10 pick for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger after learning that his suspension will last at least four games, and could possibly be as long as six games depending on his behavior.

With four quarterbacks currently on the roster with the addition of Byron Leftwich from Tampa, it's entirely feasible that the team will wind up trading him, as Leftwich or Dennis Dixon are viable starters in this case. Charlie Batch is essentially there for depth in more of a coaching role.

If Roethlisberger is traded, expect a rebuilding year for the Steelers.
