Big Ben just got paid.
How much, you may ask? How about 8 years and $102 big ones. $36 mil is guaranteed.
Jay Glazer first reported that the deal was iminent, but the details finally emerged.
Biggest contract in Steelers history? Oh, hell yes.
The Steelers are also close to signing Mewelde Moore. That might overshadow the Ben deal.
And I have no idea why The Last Supper is hanging out behind Uncle Scrooge. So don't ask.
UPDATE: Moore signed for 3 years. No money details are out there, but I'll update when I find out.
UPDATE #2: 3 years/$4.95 mil for Moore. Big Ben, consider yourself overshadowed.
