Aditi Kinkhabwala broke the Ben Roethlisberger news last night and joins us.  We ask Aditi what she does when she beats Adam Schefter to the punch on a story like this.  Aditi says her husband did pop a bottle of wine for her after she broke the news and admits there is an adrenaline rush when you know you have news nobody else has.  As for the actual report, Aditi says this whole thing between the Steelers and Ben this offseason has been unnecessarily messy.  Depending on how next year goes, Aditi thinks Ben could play beyond the 2021 season.  Aditi questions how much of a paycut Ben will take given what Philip Rivers made for one season with the Colts and what the average quarterback contract is worth.  Aditi tells us she has heard from people within the Steelers organization that this doesn't necessarily mean a deal is done.  Aditi shuts down the idea of JJ Watt for the Steelers because they don't have any money and he's a 4-3 defensive end.
