Ben Roethlisberger: Retiring, Scandal, Net Worth, Wife
Ben Roethlisberger, who has spent 18 years as quarterback with the Pittsburgh Steelers, officially announced his retirement on Thursday. He made the announcement in a video posted on social media.
As the 2021 season wore on, it became obvious that Roethlisberger would call it a career once the Steelers played their last game, even though he never explicitly said it.
He was emotional following the Steelers’ 42-21 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs during wild-card weekend, but didn’t say he was done. It wasn’t until Thursday that Roethlisberger made his retirement official.
Roethlisberger was accused of separate instances of sexual assault in 2009 and 2010. In 2009, Andrea McNulty filed a civil suit against Roethlisberger, accusing him of raping her in his Nevada hotel room in 2008. The case was settled out of court.
In 2012, the lawsuit was settled out of court, and Roethlisberger received no punishment from the NFL. Roethlisberger was back in the limelight in 2010.
According to Sports Illustrated, a second sexual assault claim has surfaced, this time from a college student in Milledgeville, Georgia.
