"When he hits (Antonio Brown) and knocks AB and his (own) guy out, that very next play... he's standing there, points to JuJu and says 'You're next,'" Roethlisberger said, via the station's website. "To me that's completely uncalled for and that's where I think I had the biggest issue."
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Monday that the league isn't expected to suspend Burfict, but the linebacker could face another fine. The seven-year pro has been suspended for 10 games in his career (six for on-field actions) and fined more than $295,000.
Perhaps if the NFL decides to look deeper into Roethlisberger's claim it might change its mind on the type of punishment Burfict deserves.
