League may finally address domestic violence

Good Morning, Broncos fans! According to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, the NFL may increase punishments for domestic abusers.

Reacting to intense criticism of Ray Rice's two-game ban, the league is considering a four- to six-game penalty for first offenders, and a one-year suspension for repeat abusers.

These changes would reportedly be implemented within a matter of weeks; the NFLPA has reportedly not been involved in the process.
