WESTMINSTER, MD. (AP) - NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is doing more than he was asked to do by the league when given a six-game suspension after being accused of sexual assault.
“Everything that he’s asked, I’ve done,” Roethlisberger said at the Steelers’ camp in Latrobe, Pa. “I’ve tried to go above and beyond. It’s positive encouragement. … Everybody thinks he’s just coming here to see me, but he’s touring all the camps. So I assume that we’re going to talk.”
While the Steelers expect Goodell to trim the suspension to four games, team president Art Rooney II said last week he doesn’t anticipate any ruling until close to end of the preseason.
“I’m not going to speculate,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Wednesday. “We know where we sit (at least six games), and we know where we potentially could sit (four games). … We’ll just continue on the path that we’re on until we get new information.”
