FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — Atlanta Falcons cornerback Jalen Collins, who started in Super Bowl LI against the New England Patriots, has been suspended without pay for the first 10 games of the 2017 regular season for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substance.
Collins is due to make $928,440 this season. The 10-game suspension will cost him $546,141.
The league made the announcement Sunday, hours after Collins nearly intercepted a pass at the end of practice. It marks the second consecutive year Collins has violated the same league policy. He served a four-game suspension without pay at the beginning of last season.
“We are extremely disappointed that for the second straight season we are dealing with a suspension for Jalen. Such are the consequences when certain choices are made. Our decisions going forward will be based on what [coach] Dan [Quinn] and I feel is best for the team,” general manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a statement.
Collins is allowed to take part in the Falcons’ preseason practices and games.
