OWINGS MILLS Womens Tyler Eifert Jersey , Md. (AP) Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith has been suspended for four games without pay for violating the NFLs personal conduct policy.

The suspension, announced Tuesday, stems from Smiths behavior toward his ex-girlfriend.

The Ravens released a statement that in part read: The Ravens fully support the NFLs decision. The NFL found evidence of threatening and emotionally abusive behaviors by Jimmy toward his former girlfriend that showed a pattern of improper conduct. Our players behavior was inappropriate and wrong.

The suspension will take effect after the final mandated roster cuts on Sept. 1 and extend through Baltimores game at Pittsburgh on Sept. 30.

Smith, in a statement issued by the Ravens, said: I promise that I have already learned much and will continue to learn more from this experience. I take full responsibility for my past conduct.

Smith will be allowed to participate in all of the Ravens preseason activities, including games. The 30-year-old is one of Baltimores best defensive backs.

The team said it reviewed the case to decide whether to keep Smith on the roster.

We convened a group of Ravens women and men executives, not directly involved with our football operations, to review the matter. We also engaged in conversations with Jimmy about his past behavior and his intention to change Joel Edmundson Jersey , the statement said.

Additionally, it is our understanding that following a long-running and difficult custody dispute with his former girlfriend and mother of his son, Jimmy has resolved his custody and support issues.

As a result, the Ravens will allow Smith to return after his suspension.

Jimmy has acknowledged his behaviors were wrong and accepts full responsibility for them. He has completed a clinical evaluation and has agreed to undertake any follow-up care or treatment that may be recommended. Jimmy has assured us that he is fully dedicated to making this change. He also understands the consequences if he does not.

Smith has played seven seasons for Baltimore since being drafted in the first round of the 2011 draft. He started in 12 games last season before an Achilles tendon injury forced him to miss the teams final four games. During those four weeks, he chose to accept an NFL suspension for using performance enhancers.

Antonio Brown didnt skip out on the vast majority of the Pittsburgh Steelers organized team activities to make a statement. Or to disrespect the backup quarterbacks. Or to take a stand alongside running back LeVeon Bell.

The All-Pro insists he simply felt more comfortable working out back home in Miami, where he could spend time with his five children and escape what he described as the pressure he faces from outside forces daily in Pittsburgh.

I needed that precious time with myself to get my mind right, Brown said Tuesday as the Steelers began a mandatory three-day minicamp.

A move the 29-year-old star called necessary as he prepares for his ninth season. Brown is typically a fixture at the voluntary workouts, where he is usually among the few players in actual football pants instead of shorts.

This spring http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.c...schultz-jersey , however, he participated in the first two days and then jetted off to Florida. The fact that starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger appeared for the first day of OTAs before taking time off for what he called a planned family vacation was purely coincidental.

I play with any quarterback, no matter whos here, Brown said. I play with the Steelers. Its not one guy that I (catch passes from).

Brown dismissed any insinuation that he left OTAs because he didnt want to work with the second or third string. He also expressed frustration with media for asking other players to comment on his absence.

You guys making up stories to ask these guys stuff that they shouldnt be dealing with, Brown said. You know, thats the pressure of being a professional athlete. Everyday scrutiny. Everyday pressure. Its hard to be free.

Brown, however, struggled to be specific about how the attention that comes with being one of the NFLs top players negatively affects him.

The only player to have five consecutive seasons with at least 100 receptions stressed he wasnt calling out Bell when he was questioned last month about Bells decision to stay away from the team while waiting to sign his franchise tender.

You guys paint me a picture to talk about LeVeon Womens Allen Robinson Jersey , Brown said. Im not involved in LeVeons business or his contract. You guys write about it and say `Oh, AB says to show up. I just say `The first rule of getting better is show up. I didnt say he got to show up. Hes got his own business.

The comments by the NFLs highest-paid wide receiver are a bit at odds with the persona hes cultivated during a career in which he has evolved from a sixth-round pick to a perennial Pro Bowler. His Instagram feed is updated multiple times a day and gives 2.4 million followers access to workouts, highlights, video of his children running track meets or artsy cuts of the multiple Rolls Royces in his driveway.

Lately, though, the posts have taken a different turn. Last week, he called out former offensive coordinator Bruce Arians for labeling him simply as a special teams guy and even tweaked coach Mike Tomlin for benching him in favor of Emmanuel Sanders during his rookie season in 2010. Pressed for an explanation, Brown hinted hes tired of toeing the company line.

I think youve got to start expressing those things that year by year that you go through to get them out of your head Chris Kreider Jersey , Brown said. I think the more you bottle stuff up and youre not aware of expressing yourself, thats when these players have problems.

Browns work ethic has never been in question. As his profile has risen hes one of the leagues most marketable players and his exuberant touchdown celebrations have taken on a life of their own hes attempted to give longer glimpses into the regimen thats made him one of the most prolific receivers of his generation. Those posts continued even as he said he wanted to create more time for himself.

I took a moment to get my mind right from organized team activities, Brown said. It wasnt even like serious. Its not even mandatory. Its volunteer.

Brown is no longer concerned about his stats but the number of titles hes won, which remains at zero. Its the one thing left on his career checklist and the one he feels his career will be judged by. That remains his sole focus even as he lives in a fish bowl of which hes been a willing architect.

The game requires a lot of mental happiness and the older you get the more you start thinking about the things that are important, he said. Ive got five kids, a lot of family the only thing left for me to do playing the game is to win a championship. I had to take a little time to spend time with my family and see whats important for me.
