PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - Our Steelers Insider Ed Bouchette from The Athletic joined Cook and Joe on Wednesday to discuss the Steelers thoughts on their top pick as the draft is a week away. Plus there is that lingering contract extension for QB Ben Roethlisberger out there.

Seattle just made their QB Russell Wilson the highest paid player in the league with his record 4 year, $140 million dollar extension. How would that affect Ben's deal? Would he get over $30 million?

Bouchette tells the guys his guess would be that it would be the neighborhood of $30 million but there is no concrete evidence out there. The Steelers though can afford to make that happen. 

"Anything less than that is an insult," Bouchette told the guys. "He is still the straw that stirs the drink...and there is still a hope in this town because they have a QB."

You can hear the full interview below including Ed's thoughts on the Steelers draft targets.
