Goodell to meet with Roethlisberger

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced on Monday evening that he will meet with Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger to discuss the latest allegations of sexual assault that have been made against the QB.

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

“First, I think the most important thing is we take the issue very seriously,” Goodell said during his first press conference of the NFL meetings being held here this week.

“We are concerned that Ben continues to put himself in this position. I have spoken to the Steelers. I have spoken to Art Rooney directly about it. And at the appropriate time I will be meeting with Ben.”

Charges haven’t been filed against Roethlisberger yet, but that doesn’t mean that he will escape discipline even if he’s ultimately never charged. If Goodell feels as though a player has sullied the image of the NFL logo, he will hand out punishment.
