McNair to Meet With NFL Commissioner to Have Cushing's Suspension Overturned

100

Per Mark Berman: NFL sources told FOX 26 Sports Houston Texans owner Bob McNair will meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Monday in New York concerning linebacker Brian Cushing's suspension for the use of performance-enhancing drugs. Sources told FOX 26 McNair's goal is to get the commissioner to eliminate or lessen the league's suspension which will cost the Texans linebacker the first four games of the regular season. League sources told FOX 26 McNair will present new evidence to the commissioner that he hopes will help Cushing's cause. Pretty unlikely, but interesting nonetheless. UPDATE: According to Peter King, the "new evidence" that Bob McNair is presenting the Commish with is something called "Overtrained Athlete Syndrome." Wow...I'm surprised Goddell even granted him a meeting if this is true... UPDATE 2: Anna Megan has some video from today's practice of Brian Cushing explaining the "syndrome."
