Big Ben’s offseason fate to be decided soon
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says he expects to decide within a week when Ben Roethlisberger can rejoin the Pittsburgh Steelers for offseason workouts.
Goodell said Tuesday at the owners meetings that he would soon review the behavioral evaluation he ordered as part of his six-game suspension of the Steelers quarterback under the league's conduct policy.
Goodell said he planned to sit down with his staff and “determine the next step.''
The two-time Super Bowl winner was suspended following a March incident in which a 20-year-old college student accused Roethlisberger of sexual assault in Milledgeville, Ga. The case will not be prosecuted.
