Report: Ben Roethlisberger's Representatives Will Ask For Suspension Reduction Of At Least Three Games

Representatives meeting with Roger Goodell on Friday on behalf of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will ask the commissioner of a reduction of at least three games from his conditional six-game suspension, according to a report by ESPN's Sal Paolantonio.

When the suspension was first handed down in April, Goodell said that the suspension would be reduced two games if Roethlisberger passed a comprehensive behavioral evaluation and stayed out of trouble. Goodell remarked in early August that Roethlisberger has been "doing what he's been asked to do -- and frankly more."

Most observers believe Goodell will reduce the suspension to four games. Any more than that would likely be viewed as a capitulation from the commissioner's original stance.
