Dan Rooney Statement Regarding His Comments About Player Conduct
To clarify the comments made earlier regarding the conduct of our players, in no way do we condone domestic violence of any kind. Each incident must be considered on a case-by-case basis.
In the situation with James Harrison, he contacted us immediately after his incident and has taken responsibility for his actions.
In today's decision with Cedrick Wilson, we determined the situation was severe enough to warrant the player being released immediately.
We trust that today's roster move will indicate our intentions and send a message that we will not tolerate this type of conduct.
