Chargers’ Garrett Brown hit with four-game suspension


Chargers defensive lineman Garrett Brown is suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, the NFL announced today.

Brown is eligible to continue playing in the preseason, but he’ll have to miss four games to start the regular season. If he makes the Chargers’ 53-man roster, he’ll be eligible to become active again on October 1.

The Chiefs signed Brown as an undrafted free agent out of Minnesota in 2010. He has never played in a regular-season game.

There’s no word on which banned substance Brown tested positive for.

    There’s no word on which banned substance Brown tested positive for.

    There will be: Adderal.

    I like MLB’s PED policy better. As we just saw with Cabrera, they announce what the positive drug test was for. I think that has a better deterrent effect, because the player cannot lie about the substance.

    Who the heck is Garret Brown? Damik Scaife and Logan Harrel are the only two d-linemen that arent guaranteed a roster spot who actually have a shot at making it on the team or practice squad whoever this guy is was probably just a training camp body.

    Has never played in a regular season game, now the only thing that will be associated with him and a regular season game is that he is suspended from them. May has name never be mentioned again.

    Ahhhh, yes it’s the off season. That means it’s time to crown the preseason SB champs, just like every year for the past 5-7 years. Every year, same old story. Raider fans think they’re gonna win the Super Bowl, and the media thinks the Chargers are gonna win the Super Bowl.

    5-7 years ago they were the media darlings. Hasnt been the case for a few years though. When florio ranked them 16th people were acting like he ranked them top 5. It was comical.
    People have the chargers being favorites engraved into their heads. Theyre just not the same team at all. Doesnt mean i think theyre not a good team, they just wont have 8 pro bowlers again.

    It’s like the drug capital of the NFL down there. Too close to the border.
