NFL Considering Toughening Domestic Violence Penalties

(Washington, DC) -- The NFL may be looking to crack down harder on players involved in cases of domestic violence. The "Washington Post" reports the league is considering suspensions of four-to-six games without pay for first-time offenders and possibly a season-long suspension for a second offense. The NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell have been widely criticized for levying just a two-game suspension to Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, who was arrested in February for allegedly striking his now wife at an Atlantic City casino.
