Steelers Will Reportedly Be Fined For The Actions Of Roethlisberger, Holmes

Not only is Ben Roethlisberger expected to be suspended for his off-the-field actions this offseason, the Steelers will be punished as well, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Two years ago, the NFL added language into its personal conduct policy allowing the NFL to fine the teams if multiple players ran afoul of the law. 

If (and when) Roethlisberger is punished, the franchise is facing a fine upwards of six figures -- possibly in the neighborhood of $200,000 -- for the behavior of Roethlisberger and former Steelers wide receiver Santonio Holmes, according to a league source.

This can't sit well with the Rooney family, who was reportedly "disgusted" by Roethlisberger's actions.

Roethlisberger won't be disciplined until after the draft. A suspension of two to four games is expected.
