The Pittsburgh Steelers are not a lock to make the playoffs after yesterday's loss to the New Orleans Saints. But even if things don't go their way in 2018, it looks like quarterback Ben Roethlisberger isn't going anywhere.

In an appearance on his weekly radio segment on 93.7 radio, Roethlisberger revealed that he has "every intention of playing next year."

He added that he does not plan on thinking about next season until the current season is over.

Roethlisberger leads the NFL with 4,842 passing yards - just 110 shy of his career-high in 2014. With less than 200 yards in next week's season finale against the Bengals, he would become the first Steelers player in history to throw for over 5,000 yards in a season.

The two-time Super Bowl champion has been the Steelers' starter since taking over the job early in the 2004 season.

He is the Steelers' leader in every major passing category and led the team to Super Bowl victories in Super Bowl XL and XLIII.

Since Roethlisberger started playing, the Steelers have not had a single losing record.
