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.
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.
