This just solidifies an already good trade for the Steelers in my mind.

wonder what would happen if this did happen while he was a steeler and we knew this would happen

didn't we trade that pick to move up for Rudolph? guessing the NFL would make us give up a high pick from the 2019 draft ..voiding the deal could be a headache since multiple players would be involved

If it was determined that they knew before trading him they would have to give up their 3rd Rdr next year (I assume). Unless the NFL added some sort of penalty which actually wouldn't surprise me. But I don't think any of that happens.

We traded Santonio Holmes knowing of an impending suspension and were never penalized.

In reality they would have to prove that the Pittsburgh Steelers knew and that will likely never happen.

Was his pending suspension known to all? I feel like it was. There may not be any type of policy in place but it seems like if a team knew a player was about to be suspended and traded him to an unknowing team the NFL would frown upon that. Then again, maybe it's a case of buyer beware.

I think yes and no.

I think it was known he didn't pass, what I don't think was known was is this the one that put him in the program or was it the one that suspended him.
