BEN ROETHLISBERGER, Pittsburgh Steelers
Big Ben was handed a 6 game suspension for his involvement in a drunken evening in Milledgeville, Ga. A woman accused him of sexual assault, then refused to press charges. The DA eventually decided there wasn't enough evidence to prosecute. The league suspended Roethlisberger anyway and said that he must get counseling.
