The NFL announced that Falcons cornerback Jordan Miller has been suspended for four games due to a violation of the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. The suspension will go into effect immediately, with the remaining three games on the ban being enforced in 2020.
Miller, 22, was a fourth-round draft pick of the Falcons in 2019. He still has three years to go on his four-year, $2.75MM rookie deal.
In his freshman season, Miller appeared in ten games and notched four tackles and one fumble recovery. Next year, he may get a better chance to showcase his bump-and-run coverage skills, but, first he’ll have to sit out the early weeks of the 2020 season.
The Falcons will close out the 2019 season against the Buccaneers, without Miller on the roster. The game won’t have any playoff implications, but a win would give the 6-9 Falcons four straight wins to close out the year.
