Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said this is not the first time he has heard Ben Roethlisberger talk about retirement.

Jan 24 - 12:38 PM

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he is in wait-and-see mode with suspended WR Martavis Bryant.

Bryant applied for reinstatement earlier this month, and Tomlin said he is "hopeful" the receiver will be allowed back in the league. As we have learned from Aldon Smith, being eligible for reinstatement does not guarantee it will happen, but Bryant seems to have taken the necessary steps during his ban. Tomlin's hope could end up being well-founded.

Falcons C Alex Mack (ankle) said he will be ready for the Super Bowl.

Mack is reportedly dealing with a "swollen, painful sprained ankle" which will keep him out of practice this week, but it was always likely he would gut it out in the biggest game of the year. Still, his practice participation will be worth monitoring next week.

In a radio interview, Ben Roethlisberger said he will "take some time" to "consider all options" this offseason.

"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," Roethlisberger said. Ben has taken a beating during his 13 seasons in the NFL, but he is only 34 and would owe Pittsburgh $18.6 million if he walks away. It would be beyond shocking if he decides to retire.

The MMQB's Andrew Brandt does not believe there will be a "robust market" for Tony Romo.

"At this point in his career, which has recently been dominated by injuries, he cannot be counted on as a starting quarterback in 2017," Brandt wrote, "and trade offers will reflect that." Owed $14 million in 2017 and with no guarantees left, Romo's contract is not a deterrent to a potential trade, but it seems likely he will be available for free on the open market at some point this offseason, which is obviously a more palatable price for a quarterback who needs to prove he can last more than one or two games. With the specter of retirement also certain to hurt his trade value, the Cowboys will be lucky to get anything for Romo.

The MMQB's Andrew Brandt believes it is "delusional" to think Jimmy Garoppolo will fetch a first-round pick.

ESPN's Adam Schefter believes the Eagles' haul for Sam Bradford (1st and 4th) is the "starting point" in trade negotiations for Garoppolo, but Brandt does not believe the two situations are comparable, as the Vikings were desperate after losing Teddy Bridgewater to a serious knee injury. If the Patriots cannot nab a first or early-second, they could decide to let Garoppolo play out the final year of his contract and hope for a high conditional pick when he inevitably signs a massive deal in free agency.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Falcons C Alex Mack will not practice this week because of a "swollen, painful sprained ankle."

Mack suffered the injury in the NFC Championship Game, but he was able to finish out the win. He might have been in trouble if the Super Bowl was this weekend, but the extra time off should allow him to suit up for the biggest game of the year. That said, his status will need to be monitored closely next week.

Chiefs hired former Eagles WRs coach Greg Lewis for the same position in Kansas City.

Lewis is replacing David Culley, who is joining the Bills as a QBs coach. Lewis took the fall for Philly's disastrous receiver group in 2016, but it is hard to blame him considering the level of talent he was working with. Lewis played under Andy Reid for six seasons with the Eagles in the mid-2000s.
