Yes, the Steelers are having issues right now. But they're not alone.
The Bengals might be losing their starting running back, Cedric Benson, to a suspension now that he has been arrested on charges of misdemeanor assault.
Benson allegedly punched a bar employee in the face in Austin, Texas back on Memorial Day weekend. The former University of Texas star, who rushed for 1,251 yards and six touchdowns last year for the Bengals, was arrested today.
This isn't the first time Benson has been in trouble with the law; he was arrested twice while in college and received eight days in jail for a trespass conviction, and was arrested in twice in 2008 for allegedly operating a boat while intoxicated and driving while intoxicated.
All the above events took place in Austin. You'd think by now that Benson would be wise enough to steer clear of a city which has led to so much trouble.
Here's an interesting statistic that I just saw on Twitter (of course, you can follow me @DanKolko): As one of 32 NFL teams, Bengals players make up 3% of the league. But since 2000, the Bengals have accounted for 6.3% of arrests among NFL players, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.
On a different note, ESPN is doing a series of interviews with players who will enter the 2010 season with a new team.
Today's subject was none other than Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin.
Boldin sat down with Sal Paolantonio to talk about his new squad, how he feels about working with Joe Flacco, and what Ray Lewis first said to him when the linebacker heard of the trade that was bringing Boldin to Baltimore.
