Steelers official expecting PR nightmare
Rashard Mendenhall’s comments on Osama Bin Laden have as expected caught fire and put the Steelers in an uncomfortable position which has prompted Steelers President Art Rooney II to release a statement this morning…
“I have not spoken with Rashard so it is hard to explain or even comprehend what he meant with his recent Twitter comments, ” Art Rooney II said. The entire Steelers’ organization is very proud of the job our military personnel have done and we can only hope this leads to our troops coming home soon.”
One Steelers official told me he’s expecting a PR nightmare out of this.
Mendenhall’s reps at Priority Sports had no comment when reached via phone this morning.
