Report: Jalin Marshall Facing 4 Game Ban For Violating Drug Policy

New, comments

If reports are true and Jalin is banned for the first 4 games of the 2017 NFL Season, he just made things harder on himself.

According to a report from the New York Daily News, Jalin Marshall is facing a 4 game suspension for testing positive for Adderall, a performance enhancing drug.

Marshall flashed his talent in 2016, but also experienced an up and down year as both a receiver and a return man, struggling to hold onto the ball at times.

According to the report:

The Daily News has learned that Jets wide receiver Jalin Marshall will be suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Marshall tested positive for Adderall, according to sources.

Marshall who went undrafted out of Ohio State finished his rookie year with 14 receptions for 162 yards and 2 touchdowns.

This is really disappointing news to hear, as I don’t think Marshall has done enough to warrant carrying him through four games of a suspension. With the Jets in re-build mode, he would have been given every opportunity to compete for a roster spot, and he may well still be given that chance, but he’s just seriously decreased his chance of making the team.
