Report: Raiders, Steelers reached a quick impasse on Big Ben
To the extent that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is feeling nervous about an Alcatraz exile, he can exhale a bit today.
Steve Corkran of the Oakland Tribune reports that the Raiders contacted the Steelers about a possible trade, that the Raiders weren’t willing to give up the No. 8 pick in the draft, and the Steelers weren’t willing to throw in the No. 18 pick in order to sweeten the deal.
So unless the Steelers will take Oakland’s second-round pick, it’s not going to happen.
