Vadal Alexander suspended four games for PED violation

The Raiders took two offensive tackles in the draft and that make the competition for spots on the 53-man roster tighter at the position in the coming months.

That could be bad news for Vadal Alexander, who didn’t do anything to help his chances of making the team again this year by getting suspended. The team announced that Alexander has been suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Alexander, a 2016 seventh-round pick, played 24 games and made nine starts for the Raiders the last two years.

Alexander is able to practice with the team this offseason and play in the preseason before starting his suspension. He will be eligible to return to the roster after a September 30 game against the Browns.

    The only thing you should be SURE about is that you’re an idiot.

  3. Was a fan of this team most of my life and they don’t make it easy anymore to hang in there.

  4. This team is a clown show. Look at your drafts, your trades, your free agency? No character whatsoever, only rap sheets. And you wonder why you haven’t won a playoff game in a million years.

  5. Alexander performed very poorly in his starts with the Raiders so his suspension is no loss as far as I’m concerned.

    I’m not too impressed by the 2 OTs that the Raiders just drafted but I have to think that they’re an improvement over Alexander. And if the Raiders have any common sense, they’ll get rid of Penn too.

  6. Some of the “experts” were second guessing the Raiders for drafting those two elite young tackles, but it’s funny, I haven’t heard any chirping this morning. Raiders fans, just sit back and relax and enjoy the next decade. As time goes on, it’s going to become clear that Mark Davis knew what he was doing when he handed the keys to the Raiders to Jon Gruden.
