...Oh boy.

June 8, 2018

Julian Edelman has been suspended 4 regular-season games for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing substances policy. It’s in the appeal process right now; Edelman took hundreds of tests before and didn’t test positive. This particular time, he did test positive for some sort of substance. New England’s first four opponents of the 2018 season are the Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Detroit Lions, and Miami Dolphins. Edelman will also have to forfeit $470,588.20 in base salary.
