Browns players who sacked “Big Ben” over the years

Article Summary:

The Cleveland Browns joined the rest of the NFL on Thursday in wishing quarterback Ben Roethlisberger “Farewell” as the quarterback announced his retirement after playing 18 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

It was certainly not a fond farewell from the Browns, but something more along the lines of “He’s finally gone, thankfully,” after being on the wrong side of the scoreboard during Roethlisberger’s career.

The Browns famously passed on selecting Roethlisberger in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft because they reportedly did not believe that a 6-foot-4 and 242-pound quarterback would survive behind the team’s weak offensive line.

Not being selected by his “Hometown team” allegedly angered Roethlisberger to the point that he made it his career mission to torment the Browns, or so the story goes.
