Commissioner Roger Goodell has plans to meet this week with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Goodell is awaiting today\’s news conference in Georgia set for 2 p.m. ET before proceeding with his planned meeting.
Really the trade of Santonio Holmes to the Jets last night was not surprising, what would be surpising is if Jets running back Leon Washington was part of the deal. Washington has yet to sign his tender offer from the Jets yet, so that is what makes this sketchy right now.
What several Steelers fans are missing in all this is that Santonio Holmes will indeed be suspended for 4 gamesin 2010 according to Adam Schefter. He was damaged goods and the Steelers did good to get a 5th round pick.
The Steelers will bring in wide receiver Antonio Brownof Central Michigan for a pre draft visit today. He is the only one scheduled for Monday and the Steelers have visited with 29 of 30 allowed players.
The Steelers 2010 schedule dates could be released by the NFL today. We already know who the Steelers will be playing home and away, just not the order or dates.
