Roethlisberger will attend OTAs on Tuesday

Last week, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger received clearance from Commissioner Roger Goodell to return to offseason workouts in Pittsburgh.

Our friends at 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh report that Roethlisberger will show up on Tuesday to rejoin the preparations for the 2010 season.

Roethlisberger had been banished by the league from offseason workouts in April as part of his suspension for violating the Personal Conduct Policy.  His return hinged on satisfactory completion of a comprehensive psychological evaluation.

Moving forward, however, it will be Roethlisberger’s behavior that influences his availability to play football.  His suspension covers six games, but it could be reduced.  It also could be extended.

    – Save your energy for your Nevada court date Ben – I very highly doubt you will see the field this year

    He’ll be fingering both of his Lombardi’s for all u fans of teams that don’t know what 1 looks like..

  8. this class sucks says: May 31, 2010 2:59 PM

    I think the fact that it could be extended goes without saying. Goodell will only lengthen the suspension if Ben does something else, but if Ben did something else there would probably be a suspension anyway. I’m just saying, we all know he could be suspended again if he did anything else, it seems pointless to tack that on to every Ben related article.

    Roethlisberger will only finger his Lombardi trophies if they ask him not to.

  13. Ravenmaniac says: May 31, 2010 3:40 PM

    As someone who has repeatedly called ben a diva…(which he is) and someone who has said he will need professional help….he has started on his recommended evaluations. Let him get back to practice and to the NFL. If he conducts himself properly he will stay in the NFL if he messes up he will be sitting out again.
    Personally, I think bens actions stem from him being a first class asshole off the field. Other than being a diva on the field, I have always thought ben was not that bad of a guy on the field. When he scores he celebrates within reason and does not cry for penalties very often. Unfortunately for steeler fans, guys like ben do not change very often off the field. Things will settle down and he will still have his status and more than likely will mess up. I hope he does not.
    Good luck ben…..

    Sad thing is you probably have no idea how ridiculous you just made yourself look with your comment.

  18. Bazooka Joe says: May 31, 2010 4:20 PM

    Only a dumbass trashy prick like “This Class Sucks” would try comparing rape and murder to excuse Ben Rapistburger’s actions.
    Son, let’s clue you in though I doubt your brain can handle facts.
    1. Ray was gulty of obstruction, not murder. So that wipes out your “attack.”
    2. Rape is much worse than obstruction of justice.
    Now as to your attack here “@blackglass
    Wisely you didn’t put your favorite team’s name in your username. So lets assume you are a…Ravens fan. Do you really have any room to talk about criminals? A player not being charged for a crime isn’t as bad as a player having to go to court on a murder related case. Murder is worse than sexual misconduct.
    Uh, the Steelers have had much more overall and recent brush ins with the law than the Ravens and Bengirls.
    So, take your yellow towel and shove it up that place on your body that has an enter sign: your ass.

  19. Rasta says: May 31, 2010 4:51 PM

    Being intelligent, of sound character, and morals are not a requsite of the NFL.
    Just don’t shoot yourself while scratching your balls in NYC,or kill a few dogs and you will be alright. MY GOD! I left out or test positive for GANJA.

    You can’t have two favortite teams you must be a woman or a frontrunner.
    Let me guess–if Pitt and SF were in a super bowl your favorite team would be the winner.
    Go back to cheerring for your favortie figure skater(s).

    Like blackglass, I wisely don’t have my favorite team’s names in my user name. But that doesn’t seem fair so I will tell you: my favorite teams are the 49ers and Steelers. Both teams have their hangups, which you can feel free to go after. Before you ask; yes, the fact that my favorite teams have 5 and 6 Super Bowls does console me through even the worst times.

    As a Steelers fan, I must admit I am conflicted when it comes to Ben. Clearly he has acts like a tool to women, mix that with alcohol, you get what happened in GA. I do not know what really occurred in in that bathroom, I am guessing Ben and the college woman were too drunk to remember as well (see changed accounting of events in police reports). I do know that he provided alcohol to people not old enough to legally drink, which is why he was suspended without the serious charge/conviction of rape. I must see much better behavior off the field (meaningful charity work and humility) before I can move past this recent events.

  23. Holeinone09 says: May 31, 2010 5:18 PM

    Ravenmaniac, well and reasonably said by a true division competitor. Ben is taking his punishment without bitching and deserves his chance. If he blows it when off the field, then he will be out of chances with Steeler fans. Here’s to also hoping he finally gets the message loud and clear.
    This is a VERY LONG offseason and I am chomping at the bit for the season to start!

  26. ashamedsteelerfan says: May 31, 2010 5:40 PM

    Just because Ben was never charged, don’t mean a thing. After the first accusation maybe you give him the benefit of the doubt, but, then the second incident. How can anyone give him the benefit of the doubt? You’ve got to be a moron to continue to support this guy. The only reason he wasn’t charged in Georgia was because the police bungled the investigation, like failing to seal off the crime scene for 30 minutes after the alleged act. The restroom was actually cleaned before the crime scene was processed! That’s a fact! Research it! It sickens me to think that the only reason the Steelers are keeping him is because of his huge contract. It was easy for them to dump that piece of trash Santonio Holmes. Now all Steeler fans are stuck with this garbage.

    You’re absolutely right. When the cop asked her if he raped her, she said “No.”
    Thanks for setting the record straight. There are a lot of confused people out there who are trying to defame the black & gold.

  28. civilwarfish says: May 31, 2010 6:10 PM

    Ben defamed the Black and Gold. Twice. That we know of.
    He was not proven innocent. he simply evaded prosecution because he could afford to fight the allegations.
    Money works wonders. Ask Ray Lewis.

  30. Mister Fister says: May 31, 2010 6:28 PM

    It’s real original to just call him a rapist, wow you guys are hilarious. At least try and make some creative rape jokes.
    The Steelers are still a much better organization than the Browns and the Bengals. Browns just hire no talent scrubs and for the Bengals it’s a plus if a guy has character issues. They take a guy who is one mistake away from serious jail time just so they can earn a bs reputation as a team that “turns players lives around”, what a joke.

    I have been a Steeler fan forever. If Ben plays I hope they lose every game.

  33. civilwarfish says: May 31, 2010 7:17 PM

    Mister Fister…interesting name. Seems to me being a fister could have some off color connotations….yee haw!
    Funny…steelers hire ex browns for their HOF caliber people. Chuck Noll. Played for the Browns. Bill Cowher. Played for the Browns. Seems the Squealers took the quality imparted into these two men and rode that to their titles. Tomlin is a loser. Worthlessburger is a loser. They are riding the fastlane DOWNHILL.
    We arent calling Ben a rapist…that was done by the victims in these cases…the ones who didnt have enough money to outduel Ben’s money. His actions brought on the nicknames and the reputation. Where theres smoke theres fire.
    All teams have their warts. The Browns certainly have theirs. But the Browns have stopped hiring no talent scrubbs in case you didnt notice…and in case you missed it last time they played Ben ate turf…a lot. Browns won. First time in a long while…but first in a long string of successes. Watch and see…

    Did you sleep through civics class? Do you know anything about our legal system? A person is innocent until proven guilty. No one has to proved innocent.
    The woman in Nevada said in Emails, after the alleged rape that she wanted to have Ben’s child.
    The girl in Georgia told the cops that he didn’t rape her.
    Does this mean anything to you?

The Browns could have had Chuuck Noll or Bill Cowher but Modell was not smart enough to hire them. The scary thing is Butch Davis is the best coach you had since your expansion team came back lol.

  47. hamburglar says: May 31, 2010 10:04 PM

    The real issue here is that James Harrison is a bigger dirtbag then Rapeholeberger and no one cares. Also, the Steelers last two Super Bowls have featured some VERY shady officiating.

  48. lin1945 says: May 31, 2010 10:16 PM

    Big mistake to let Ben return to practice this soon. Here we go again . . . enabling Ben to be the QB star when he has not served even one suspension game. He violated a young woman and another slap on the hand.

    Golly, how great to have Big Ben back.
    Obviously he didn’t rape anyone. If he had, he would have been arrested and in jail.
    After all, no criminal has EVER gone unpunished in the history of the country.
    And after all, every guy on here has been accused or rape at least 2 or 3 times. It happens all the time and for no reason at all.
    Ben’s just a great human who was wrongly accused simply because he happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time with his pants down.
    Nothing more.

    The Squeelers LOST to one of the more weaker versions of the Browns last year with Worthlessburger under center. The LAST meeting with the Browns was and we knocked you chumps out of the playoffs!!! Remember, this is “the what have you done for me lately” NFL and the Stoolers have not done squat lately EVEN LOSING TO THE BROWNS. LFMAO!!!How’s that for a SHIT sandwich Squeeler fans????
    I will LFMAO when the Browns knock a most likely very rusty Worthlessburger into next week after he comes off his suspension. Just wait until 10/17/10 and see!!! Times they are a changin Squeeler fans!!!
