The Steelers also posted a thank you to Roethlisberger as he stepped away from the game of football, officially entering retirement and work as a full-time dad and husband. 

Big Ben announced his retirement on social media, releasing a video thanking the fans, the team and the game of football. 

"The journey has been exhilarating, fueled by a spirit of competition," Roethlisberger said. "Yet the time has come to clean out my locker, hang up my cleats and continue to be all I can be to my wife and children. I retire from football a truly grateful man."

Roethlisberger walks away fifth all time in yards passing (64,088) and completions (5,440) and eighth in touchdowns (418). Only Peyton Manning (54) had more game-winning drives than Roethlisberger (53).
