Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not be charged after an investigation into accusations of sexual assault by a 20-year-old woman in Georgia, sources told ESPN.

Sources confirmed to ESPN's Kelly Naqi that District Attorney Fred Bright will announce on Monday that charges will not be brought against Roethlisberger. Bright said in a statement Friday he has reviewed all the investigation reports and will hold a news conference at 2 p.m. ET Monday.

Milledgeville police Chief Woodrow Blue said Wednesday his department and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation had wrapped up their investigation into a 20-year-old college student's claim that Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her early March 5 at a club in Milledgeville.

It was the second time in a year that Roethlisberger has been accused of sexual misconduct. He also faces a lawsuit filed last July by a woman who says he raped her in 2008 at a Lake Tahoe hotel and casino, an allegation he denies. Roethlisberger has not been criminally charged in either case and has claimed counter-damages in the lawsuit.

Roethlisberger did not report to Pittsburgh's offseason workouts last month. The next critical day for players is April 19, when on-field practice starts. Most of the team is expected to be on hand then.


Phewwwhh..

Big Ben got lucky again. He needs to realize he can't put himself in these situation. He has some growing up to do.

Quote:
Multiple sources have advised us that receiver Santonio Holmes is facing a four-game suspension under the league's substance-abuse policy. It's presently unknown whether Holmes tested positive for a prohibited substance or committed some other violation of the policy, such as missing a required test. It's our current understanding that the internal NFL appeals process has not been finalized.

Under the substance-abuse policy, a four-game suspension comes after multiple violations. The fact that Holmes, the MVP of Super Bowl XLIII, is facing a four-game suspension means that Holmes previously has paid a fine in the amount of three seventeenths of his base salary (i.e., three game checks).

Our draft;

Maurkice Pouncey (C/OG) - Great player and fills a need. Grade: A
Jason Worilds (OLB) - A linebacker basically made for our defense. Great speed on the edge and can get after the QB. Grade: A
Emmanuel Sanders (WR) - He's one hell of an athlete and can make plays in open space. Also has great feet and hands. Grade: B+
Thaddeus Gibson (OLB) - He was pretty good at Ohio State but he is a bit of a project and we already took Worilds at LB. Grade: B
Chris Scott (OG) - Gives us more depth at guard and he is a big strong guy that we can develop over a year or two. Grade: B.
Crezdon Butler (CB) - He tested pretty good at the combine and gives us more depth at CB. However we got McFadden back and drafted two corners last year. Grade: B-
Stevenson Sylvester (OLB) - He was a standout in college and is a good player but I don't see the need for him consider our depth at LB and already drafting two previous to him. Grade: C
Jonathan Dwyer (RB) - Willie is now gone and we needed to add depth at RB. He somehow slipped to the 6th round and he is a big strong runner. Nice steal. Grade: B+
Antonio Brown (WR) - I don't know much about him but he tested pretty poorly at the combine. Grade: C-

The biggest move was getting Bryant McFadden in that trade so we can slide William Gay to nickleback and help out our secondary. He already knows the system too which is a big plus.

I take back what I said about all the lbs. Our kick coverage unit was awful last year and this will give us more studs to throw on special teams.

I agree...while the draft wasnt "sexy" , i think it was a great draft as far as drafting needs go! Interior Oline...olb depth that we havent had in years...sp teams depth...a starting cb in Bmac and a bruising short yardage runner in Dwyer...I like this draft!

Thanks for the breakdown I was looking for something like this. I still think the steelers need another defensive back. Whoever replaced Troy was terrible, I think it was gay. I remember him missing so many coverages... Steelers defense was so much worse with Troy out.

Do you think they did enough to fix the offensive line? That was really their biggest weakness, Ben didn't have enough time to throw. The problem was magnified because Ben loves to hold on to the ball for too long sometimes.

I'm excited about Sanders. I trust the Steelers scouts. Wallace was a great rookie WR hopefully he will continue to develop and Sanders will pan out as well. I didn't like the trade for Holmes even though he would be suspended.

Gonna be an interesting first 6 weeks without Ben, I just hope we can go 3-2 they play some tough teams: Atl, Tenn, TB Baltimore and the Browns. Just glad the Steelers get a Bye.

Tyrone Carter is the person who replaced Troy at safety and he got released, thank God. He was flat out horrible.

I think the problem with William Gay was that we asked too much from him. We played him as our #2 corner because realistically Deshea is too old and can't cover anymore (he got released too). With McFadden back, we can slide Gay to nickle which suits him better. Also we didn't get as much pressure on the QB with Troy and Aaron Smith out. We have another pass rusher with Worilds now and Aaron Smith returns healthy.

Pouncey is an improvement to the o-line but not the end of all our problems. Our interior line was pretty bad tho so he will help our efforts running the ball and in the passing game. Mendenhall should improve off his breakout year last year too.

Our schedule really isn't too bad for the game Ben is out. Atl is definitely a winnable game and TB/Cleveland should be wins but who knows. We played Baltimore tough without him last year but they add Dickson and Boldin as recieving threats. Tennessee is a likely game to win either but I think it is realistic to win if Denny plays well.

Limas Sweed tore his ACL at mini camp and is out for the year. I really feel bad for him he just can't seem to get it together. He's been struggling with depression and now this.
