In 2019, Jalin Marshall has been linked to four professional football leagues. But sticking in the highest-regarded one eludes him, and that status might not be changing for a bit.
Marshall signed with the Raiders earlier this offseason but was cut days later. We have some clarity on perhaps why the wide receiver’s Oakland stay was so brief. The NFL free agent has incurred a four-game suspension, ESPN.com’s Field Yates has learned (Twitter link).
This is Marshall’s second NFL suspension. As a Jet in 2017, he was popped for PEDs and banned for four games. Although the Jets retained him via reserve/futures deal in January, Marshall has not played in an NFL game since his 2016 rookie season.
Marshall, 23, resurfaced with the Alliance of American Football this year, catching 26 passes for 364 yards and three touchdowns with the Orlando Apollos, and recently participated in one of the XFL showcases. The former UDFA out of Ohio State landed on the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ practice roster Monday.
