We heard it last season, Mr. Rooney said they had to protect their quarterback and today with the re-signing of Ramon Foster that is just what they are doing. The Steelers most durable line-man is Foster, he can play both sides of the line and if someone gets injured they are going to need this experienced guard.
According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter Foster signed a 3 year deal to stay with the Steelers. That should come as very good news to all Steelers fans. With the way the team lost thier quarterback last season, the team knows they can’t let Ben take another hit like that.
The team has to do what ever they can to give Roethlisberger all the protection they can. Mr. Rooney said before camp began in 2012 they needed to protect the Q.B. better. When David DeCastro went down in the 2012 preseason the O-line was hurting. The only guy that played all 16 games last year on the offensive line was Ramon Foster. Thank God they were able to resign him before the official start of free agency tomorrow.
I wonder if Ben made a couple of phone calls???
