Big Ben

"Big Ben"

Ben Roethlisberger had been accused of sexually assaulting a 20 year old college student in a night club. For the past month or so Roethlisberger had been in and out of court waiting to see if he would be charged sexual assault, and even sentenced to time in jail. Tuesday the charges were dropped on Roethlisberger but he was not out of trouble yet. Ty Ballou owner of PLB Sports Inc. ended Roethlisbergers's contract which could cost him 2.5 million in endorsements.
Roethlisberger is still in the NFL and is still the quarterback for the Steelers but suspension is still in the picture. He might be suspended for the first half of the 2010 season, and his salary will be cut down. Roethlisberger had no statement on what is going on and all he could do is just wait to see what his future looks like. I don't think they are going to completely kick him out of the NFL because he wasn't charged. But definite suspensions because of the embarrassment to the NFL and the Steelers organization.
