Over the weekend, reports came out that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger settled his lawsuit with a woman in Lake Tahoe who had accused him of rape in 2008.Neither Roethlisberger’s or the accuser’s lawyer had any comment on the settlement.

But a source told Pro Football Talk that Roethlisberger settled his case for ‘less than a game check.’ PFT estimated his game checks to be about $685,000, which won’t cause much of a dent in the quarterback’s pocket.
