Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall has officially filed an appeal to NFL offices regarding his recent 2-3 game suspension, the Denver Post reports. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is expected to hear the appeal and make a ruling before the start of the regular season.
Marshall’s lawyer Harvey Steinberg had some very strong words for the Commish and the Personal Conduct Policy in general after the immediate announcement of the suspension. I’m interested to see how far he is going to take this appeal – if he wants to, he could question the very policy itself. To me, that’s a good thing.
The good news is that it sound like Goodell might be willing to drop the suspension from 2-3 games to 1-2, based on the wording of the DPO report. Let’s cross our fingers that that’s the case.
