Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk did some digging in the NFL policies and found out some really interesting information. According to Florio, anyone who is popped for PED usage can have their suspension reduced by up to 50 percent if that person provides information to the league about anyone else who has violated the policy. This is what it says:
“The NFL Management Council may, prior to the conclusion of a Player’s appeal, reduce the length of the suspension and corresponding bonus forfeiture by up to 50% when the Player has provided full and complete assistance (including hearing testimony if required) to the Management Council which results in the finding of an additional violation of the Policy by another Player, coach, trainer or other person subject to this Policy,” the policy reads.
Could you imagine a player from one team testifying on a player from in their division to get their suspension reduced? Who does that? I am sorry I thought this was pretty interesting, and kudos to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
