Datone Jones was suspended for marijuana possession

According to Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com, former UCLA defensive lineman Datone Jones was cited for marijuana possession in Green Bay on January 19, one day after the Packers lost the NFC title game in Seattle, which is why he was suspended for one game by the NFL

The following month, Jones paid an $880 fine to dismiss the charge. It now gets a lot more expensive, due to the suspension.

According to Pro Football Talk, He will lose $65,088 in base salary for the one-game suspension (1/17th of his 2015 salary of $1.106 million), and he’ll be subject to the forfeiture of $57,677 in signing bonus money.
