Steelers RB Bell could have suspension reduced


The Sports Xchange

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell could have his suspension reduced from three games if the NFL Players Union and NFL can reach a settlement agreement in ongoing talks.

ESPN reported the two sides were negotiating as the Steelers opened training camp in Latrobe, Pa.

Bell was suspended three games for a DUI arrest during which he admitted to smoking marijuana. Bell told officers he smoked “two hours ago, I’m not high anymore.”

The NFL instituted a new policy on drunk driving arrests with suspensions starting at two games, with an additional game possible under “aggravating circumstances” such as drug use, possession or property damage.
