Ben Roethlisberger made it clear which side he's on in the T.J. Watt contract dispute with the Steelers. He's team T.J. and wants to see the star pass rusher get paid.
Roethlisberger had high praise for Watt and says one of the reasons he took less money was for guy like Watt to get paid. He added that the Steelers should give Watt whatever he wants.

I think it would be ridiculous for the Steelers to not get a new deal in place prior to the start of the season. Allowing Watt to miss any game time would be insane.
With that said, the Steelers can't give Watt whatever he wants. I think Big Ben's taken one too many shots to the coconut if he really thinks the Steelers should do that.
