PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – Many have speculated about what punishment the Steelers may have in store for Le’Veon Bell and LaGarrette Blount in lieu of, or in addition to, any penalties levied by the NFL.

According to 93-7 The Fan’s Steelers insider Ed Bouchette of the Post-Gazette, such speculation is needless.

Bouchette writes that the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement negates the possibility of any team discipline for the two, citing the following passage from Article 42, Section 6 “Club Discipline”:

NFL Drug and Steroid Policies: No Club may impose any discipline against a player, including but not limited to terminating the player’s Player Contract, as a result of that Player’s violation of the Policy on Anabolic Steroids and Related Sub- stances or the NFL Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse, or for failing any drug test, provided, however, that the fact that a player has violated the Policy on Anabolic Steroids and Related Substances or the NFL Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse, or has failed a drug test will not preclude the termination of his Player Contract if such termination is otherwise expressly permissible under this Agreement or the player’s Player Contract

Stay tuned to 93-7 The Fan for continuing coverage of this situation.
