NFL Suspends Vikings RB Roc Thomas

Roc Thomas‘ chances of making the Vikings became more difficult Tuesday, with the NFL announcing the second-year running back has been suspended for three games.

This stems from an arrest earlier this year. Thomas was popped for felony drug possession after police found 143.28 grams of marijuana in the 23-year-old’s apartment.

A 2018 UDFA out of Jacksonville State, Thomas only received 10 touches last season, spending time on both Minnesota’s practice squad and active roster. The Vikings signed him to a reserve/futures contract in January, but he may now face an uphill battle to stick with the team.

The Vikings allowed Latavius Murray to leave in free agency, to New Orleans, but drafted Alexander Mattison in Round 3 and re-signed Ameer Abdullah.

    3 games for nearly a kilo of drugs, but 4 for a dui. so inconsistent.

        143.28 grams is equivalent to roughly 5 oz. 5 oz is slightly over a quarter pound. It isn’t even close to a kilo.
        You are however, definitely correct in the inconsistency of the punishment.

    Ok I know this is bad and all
    But can acknowledge how cool the name Roc Thomas is?

      It’s pretty rad.

      Another favorite of mine is in baseball: J.D. Hammer.

        But who can ever compare to former linebacker Mike Stonebreaker??

      I don’t think the name Roc Thomas is that cool but if he drove a Plymouth he would be “Plymouth Roc” which has a better chance of generating some fame for him.
