For the second time in lower than a 12 months, Bears linebacker Jerrell Freeman has been suspended for PEDs.
The NFL introduced as we speak that Freeman has been suspended for 10 video games for violating the NFL’s coverage on performance-enhancing substances. Freeman was suspended for 4 video games for his first violation of the coverage in November of 2016.
Freeman is on injured reserve and wasn’t going to play anyway, however the suspension means he received’t be paid. Gamers on injured reserve obtain their wage however suspended gamers don’t.
The Bears have eight video games left, so Freeman is out for the remainder of the common season after which would miss the primary two video games of the 2018 season (or miss two playoff video games, within the unlikely occasion the Bears play two playoffs video games).
The 31-year-old Freeman is within the third 12 months of a three-year, $12 million contract. His suspension will price him about $2.2 million in wage.
