Just days after being traded from the Steelers to the Cardinals, Ben “Big Ben” Roethlisberger has found a new home… the New England Patriots!
“After being the black sheep in Pittsburgh, I really felt like I have a lot to prove. It seems like if you win one or two Superbowl championships, you really don’t get the credit and respect you deserve. I know I’m not a “Tom Brady” or a “Peyton Manning” but I’m Ben Roethlisberger. They think that you’re supposed to win one championship and you’re done. Nope; not me. I want MORE. I’m hungry and honored to be apart of an organization who loves to win as much as I do. Expect more Superbowl championships heading to Foxborough.”
Coach Sean Nguyen and his Patriots were really excited about the trade! “After the sudden retirement of our Hall of Famer quarterback Tom Brady, we were in desperate need of a new quarterback to fill in Tom’s shoes. I love Ben’s determination and motivation because it will spread onto our locker room and it’s such a positive reinforcement. Now that we have a full off-season to work with Ben, I believe he has the potential to bring Patriots a consecutive championship title!”
