Ben Roethlisberger To Ask For At Least Three-Game Reduction To Current Suspension

Ben Roethlisberger and Roger Goodell will meet Friday to discuss a reduction to the Steelers’ quarterback’s current six-game suspension.

While it was earlier reported that the suspension could be reduced to no less than four games, Roethlisberger plans to ask for “at least” a reduction of three games according to a report from ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio.

In Friday’s meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, Ben Roethlisberger’s representatives plan to ask the commissioner to reduce the six-game suspension by at least three games, bringing along team president Arthur J. Rooney II to the New York meeting to support the quarterback’s case, sources with knowledge of upcoming proceedings told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio.

According to ESPN’s report, Rooney released a statement at the time of the suspension agreeing with and supporting the Goodell’s ruling. It’s not known what role Rooney will play during Friday’s meeting between the commissioner and Roethlisberger.
