I read something about Tone in NY and how he was going to serve his suspension at the start of the season and he made a similar comment to Ben on what he intended to do over the 4 week period when they can't have contact with the team or come to the tream training facility. I can't remember where I read Tone's comments but something clicked as to how similar the comments were. Then I read the quote below in his talks with Peter King.
I wouldn't be surprised if they are going to get together and have Ben throwing to Tone over that period of time. Looks like a perfect situation for them both. Is it my mind or could there be some reason to this?
From Peter King's visit to camp:"For the length of the suspension, Roethlisberger can't go to the practice facility or have contact with any of the coaches. It's likely he'll work out mostly on his own -- he wants to go through a football workout, in cleats, daily -- and find someone to throw to."
