Friday afternoons in the NFL offseason are often when the league announces suspensions for the coming season, and today is no exception. After the Falcons confirmed today that cornerback Jalen Collins has been banned four games for violating the league’s PED policy, several other suspensions were announced as well. Here’s the breakdown:
- Jaguars CB Aaron Colvin: Four-game suspension for violating PED policy (link via ESPN’s Michael DiRocco).
- Packers CB Demetri Goodson: Four-game suspension for violating PED policy (Twitter link via Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).
- Titans WR Andrew Turzilli: Four-game suspension for violating PED policy (Twitter link via Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com).
Of those three players, Colvin is the most notable — he started 15 games for the Jaguars last season, compiling 73 tackles, four sacks, a forced fumble, and seven passes defended. With the 24-year-old out to open the season, the Jaguars will be leaning heavily on newly-signed CB Prince Amukamara.
Goodson was primarily a special-teamer for the Packers in 2015, while Turzili caught just two balls in three games for the Titans.
