The NFL has suspended Patriots defensive tackle Daniel Ekuale the first two games of the 2022 regular season, Field Yates of ESPN reports. It is unclear the reason.

Ekuale signed a futures contract with the Patriots in January after playing in seven regular-season games and New England’s playoff loss to the Bills last season.

He made five tackles, two sacks and two quarterback hits last season.

Ekuale entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Washington State in 2018, signing with the Browns. He spent much of his rookie season on Cleveland’s practice squad before making the 53-player roster in 2019.

Ekuale played for the Jaguars in 2020. When Jacksonville cut him out of the preseason last summer, Ekuale signed with the Patriots’ practice squad.

He has 22 tackles, three sacks and three quarterback hits in 23 games with five starts.

  1. He wasn’t suspended for blatantly cheating like Brady was. The only QB to be suspended for that reason.

    All his accomplishments are worthless so there’s no point for the fan club to be talking about them.

    That probably was the reason. The only thing Daniel has in common with Tom is BB — and we all know he’s a master at it.

  3. It would not surprise me to find out that he was late for practice a couple of times in a week. BB is a stickler for timeliness. The guy is a bottom of the roster player. Good one to make an example of.

    The suspension was from the league. If this came from Bill he would be a cut candidate IMO not suspended.
