Roethlisberger Will Sit 6 Games Hopes of a 2-game suspension dashed By Kevin Spak, Newser Staff Posted Apr 21, 2010 11:56 AM CDT 6 comments Comments Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wipes his face as he participates in the NFL team's practice in Pittsburgh on Monday, April 19, 2010. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar) (Newser) – Pittsburgh fans can forget any hope that Ben Roethlisberger will get off with a slap on the wrist. The league today suspended Big Ben for the first 6 games of next season for violating its personal conduct policy, reports ESPN. Some in the Steelers organization had actually feared an 8-game penance over the rape allegations. Sources also reveal that the Steelers have been calling other teams to see if any of them would deal a top 10 pick for the quarterback, and at least one team has debated such a trade internally. The Steelers aren't precisely eager to trade Roethlisberger, but would do it if the price was right, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
