The NFL announced it has fined Giants pass rusher Ryan Anderson without pay for the first six games of the regular season. Anderson violated the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances.

Anderson can play in the preseason finale Sunday but thereafter can’t return to the active roster until Oct. 18 after the Giants’ Week 6 game.

Anderson signed with the Giants as a free agent in March. They cut him earlier this month and then re-signed him in a procedural move.

He spent time early in camp on the non-football injury list with a back injury before the Giants activated him Aug. 10.

Anderson, 27, spent four seasons in Washington and made 86 tackles, six sacks and two fumble recoveries.

  1. I would complain about how stupid he is for messing up his opportunity at a great job but then I would be a hypocrite. I know pizza, burgers, chips and beer are shortening my life but I can’t stay away from those either!

  2. So can the Giants just cut him now, or do they have to wait until suspension is over? If they keep him on suspension without pay, does that count against any roster limit for them?

  3. As a rule of thumb… Any Bruce Allen draft pick that is cut, not re-signed or treated as expendable should be ignored by the other 31 teams. Alas, the gints thought this was a good idea. Surprised they didn’t sign Haskins as well.
