Tom Rooney: Roethlisberger Would Have Art Rooney, Sr. "Spinning In His Grave"

Congressman Tom Rooney, the grandson of Steelers founder Art Rooney, Sr., says the Steelers tried to trade Ben Roethlisberger and that his return to the Steelers this week would have his grandfather “spinning in his grave":

“It’s embarrassing that the guy is well compensated,” Rooney said. “You know how well our family has tried to treat some of these players, and for him to turn around misbehave the way he has the last couple of years, is just unacceptable to me. I don’t care how many Super Bowl’s he’s won for us.”

Thanks to Steelers Depot.
