In a tweet on Dec.
25, 37-year-old Ben Roethlisberger confirmed that he was getting ready for the 2020 NFL season.

Contrary to recent reports out there about my football future and my ‘uncertainty’ about playing again, I am working hard and am more determined than ever to come back stronger and better than ever next year!, Ben Roethlisberger, via Twitter.
