Jerome Bettis, former Pittsburgh Steelers standout running back and teammate of Ben Roethlisberger, says the quarterback should be suspended two games over his latest brush with the law.
Roethlisberger has been twice accused of sexual assault in the past 12 months, most recently in March by a college student in Georgia.
"I am surprised," Bettis said. "This is not in his character."
"I was definitely disappointed," Bettis told CBS' "The Early Show" Friday.
Bettis, however, said in light of the NFL's crackdown on bad behavior, a suspension, "would definitely serve as a notice" to the rest of the league.
