Former Rams pick Claude Wroten has been reinstated by NFL

Former Rams defensive tackle Claude Wroten has been reinstated by the NFL following a suspension for violating the substance abuse policy, the league has confirmed to PFT.

Wroten, a third-round pick in 2006, was originally suspended by the NFL for a minimum of one year in August of 2008. The banishment wound up lasting almost two years.

News of Wroten’s suspension being lifted was first reported by Josina Anderson of FOX31 in Denver earlier Monday.  Wroten’s agent says his client is free to sign with any team.

Wroten was hardly dominant during the brief time in the NFL when he wasn’t getting in trouble,  so it’s hard to imagine him inspiring much interest.  Wroten played for Jim Haslett in St. Louis, so the Redskins are about as likely as any team to kick his tires.
