    ESPN is reporting that Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch has been suspended three games for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. The report claims that Lynch will appeal the suspension. Lynch pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge in California stemming from a Feb. 11th arrest , and met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell three weeks ago to review the incident.

    That sounds fair.

    Now the Bills really need to sign another RB. Jackson still isn't signed and the 3rd stringer Omen ain't much of a prize.

    I can't even remember what he did. Seriously... Must not have been that bad. That's super weird... I know I could easily look it up. Wasn't it Gun Charges? Either way 3 games seems a bit stiff. Cause if I recall correctly it wasn't anything major.

    he pled to having a gun in a vehicle, but this suspension is more about the fact that it is his second charge in less than a year. He had a hit and run last june for which he had his license suspended, then he was caught in a car with a gun, reoccurring instances with the law will not be tolerated and will result in a suspension, hence this suspension.

    I can't believe how dumb these guys are man. I think Goodell dished out a fair punishment here. The NFL can't have it's players running around with guns, especially after Plaxico shooting himself.

    pretty stiff penalty (3 games), but for goodell, it's not out of the ordinary.

    it could be reduced, goodell has been known to take off a game or two upon appeal.
