From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of suspensions in the National Football League (NFL). Most NFL suspensions have been player suspensions, but several coaches, an owner, and two general managers have also been suspended. After Roger Goodell became commissioner in 2006, the league began cracking down on players performing violent hits, as well as handing out more frequent suspensions for violating the league's personal conduct and substance abuse policies. After the 2011 season was over, Goodell handed down one of the most severe suspensions in league history when he suspended eight New Orleans Saints players and coaches for their involvement in the Saints bounty program.[1][2][3]

Suspensions for violating the substance policies[edit]

The NFL has two separate policies for substances that can lead to suspension. One policy concerns the use of banned drugs that are specifically indicated to improve athletic performance (PEDs). The other policy concerns "substances of abuse" and includes drugs that may not enhance performance, but are indulged in for recreational purposes.
