This whole process has been ongoing for about the past 4 weeks. NFL doesn't announce suspensions until the appeals are all done. In retrospect, this explains why the team gave Tom Compton a series of raises while on the PS (to keep him there) and then ultimately signed him to the active roster when Ced Griffin was suspended, probably because they knew what was coming down the pike with Black.
