Ben Roethlisberger isn't ready to discuss whether he'll return next season.
The Pittsburgh Steelers suffered a 48-37 playoff loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday night, ending a season that began with them streaking out to an 11-0 record.
"I hope the Steelers want me back, if that's the way we go," Roethlisberger said. "There will be discussions, but this isn't the time for that."
The quarterback has one year left on his contract.
Roethlisberger set an NFL record with 47 completions and had 501 yards passing and four touchdowns in the Wild Card loss, but he tossed four interceptions that dug an early hole for the Steelers.
