Another Miami Dolphin Suspended For PEDs

Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones has been suspended four games for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing drugs, the NFL announced today in a classic Friday news dump.


Jones had the explanation you'd expect:

"I recently learned from the NFL that I tested positive for substance that is banned under the NFL performance enhancing substances policy," Jones said in statement. "I worked closely with the union to investigate what happened and I learned that a supplement I took caused the positive test. I deeply regret not investigating the supplement carefully before I took it, and I will never again take a supplement without having it checked."

Jones's suspension just adds to the Dolphins' shit sandwich of an offseason, joining Mike Pouncey's alleged altercation at a South Beach nightclub and defensive end Dion Jordan's four-game suspension.

Unless there's a successful appeal, the Dolphins will play the first four games of their season without last year's No. 1 pick and minus a $30 million dollar safety on defense. The 7-9 finish is just in sight. It's all part of the plan.
