PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro linebacker T.J. Watt has an ally in his contract negotiation in quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Roethlisberger says Watt “should get whatever he wants” as he tries to lock down a new deal with the team before the season opener at Buffalo.
Watt has been a fixture at the team facility since training camp opened in July but did not play in the preseason and has not participated in any contact 11-on-11 drills at any point.
