Pittsburgh Steelers starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger confirmed Friday that he will be returning for his 14th season.

Roethlisberger’s future was uncertain after he suggested retiring following the 2016-2017 NFL season.

Roethlisberger broke the news himself with a tweet.

Informed the team I am looking forward to my 14th season. Steeler Nation will get my absolute best! — Ben.

"As an organization, we have been hopeful that Ben would return this year," Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said prior to Friday’s news. "Ben and I have had many conversations, and I understood at this point in his career he is going to have to think about his long-term future. There is no question Ben wants to win [another] championship for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and we know he will do everything possible to lead our entire team to achieving that goal."

The Steelers were coming in at early 18-1 odds of winning Super Bowl 52.
