I thought he was just issuing a written statement?

Not a PC, a statement and here it is.

The Commissioner’s decision to suspend me speaks clearly that more is expected of me. I am accountable for the consequences of my actions. Though I have committed no crime, I regret that I have fallen short of the values instilled in me by my family. I will not appeal the suspension and will comply with what is asked of me ? and more.

Missing games will be devastating for me. I am sorry to let down my teammates and the entire Steelers fan base. I am disappointed that I have reached this point and will not put myself in this situation again.

I appreciate the opportunities that I have been given in my life and will make the necessary improvements.”

Just check TMZ, unfortunately you can find a lot of Steelers news there. :|

I didn't really expect too much more. With the current lawsuit pending in NV, he still has to be careful with what he says. The statements that he has released say all the right things, so now we have to hope that he follows through.
