And things just got VERY interesting.
Courtesy of ESPN’s Chris Mortenson and Adam Schefter (who is usually very accurate on his information), they have learned that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be suspended between 4 and 6 games next season. The suspension will be a MINIMUM of 4 games. If he doesn’t agree to a series of conditions such as counseling and so forth, he’ll be slapped with the full 6 games.
EDIT: It’s official. Per NFL.com, commissioner Roger Goodell has handed down a six game suspension that may be reduced to four if he complies totally with all the NFL mandated behavioral evaluations and counseling.
In addition, Schefter is reporting that the Steelers are actively shopping their disgraced quarterback. Unlike the Santonio Holmes fire sale, the Steelers aren’t willing to simply give Pig Ben away. They are seeking a top 10 draft pick in this year’s draft. So far, the teams who have allegedly shown interest are the Raiders, Bills, and possibly the Seahawks. Oh what irony that last one would be. That would be picks #6, #8 and #9 for those scoring at home. With the draft T-minus 30 hours away, things may have hit a tipping point.
