Tomlin says he knows nothing of a metting with Goodell and Roethlisberger

Mike Tomlin says as of now, he has yet to hear about any meeting the Ben Roethlisberger is supposed to have with Roger Goodell about his suspension and the chance it may officially be down to four games.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said today he has heard “absolutely nothing” regarding NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s anticipated meeting with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger after the final preseason game. “I have not,” Tomlin said at his weekly news conference at Steelers headquarters on the South Side. “I don’t know anything about that.” Despite reports that Roethlisberger will meet with Goodell Friday in New York and a Twitter update by Washington Post sports columnist Mike Wise, who said he was told that Roethlisberger’s conditional six-game suspension will be reduced to five games, Tomlin said the situation is “status quo.”

“Until we hear from the commissioner’s office, we’re going to proceed with that assumption,” Tomlin said. “I’ve heard nothing.” When asked if he was looking forward to resolution of the matter, Tomlin snapped, “I’m looking forward to today. Again guys, I don’t have intimate details of the next step of this process,” Tomlin added. “I’ll wait to hear from the commissioner’s office in regards to that, and I know that we will. To this point, I have not so I don’t have any interesting insight into the Ben situation today.”
