    Not sure why. Really has nothing to do with training camp (other than timing).

    It's important enough to have its own thread ...

    Carry on.

    Harbaugh speaks:
    Baltimore Ravens
    defensive back
    Asa Jackson
    has been suspended for the first eight games of the season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances, the NFL announced Friday.

    Coach John Harbaugh said during a Friday news conference that Jackson is "getting what he deserves."
    "You've got to follow the rules. You don't follow the rules, you get suspended," Harbaugh said. "That's a fair rule. There's really no place for that."Harbaugh said "time will tell" if the defensive back will still be with the team following the suspension.Jackson is a second-year pro out of Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo. The
    Ravens
    selected the 5-foot-10, 190-pounder in the fifth round (No. 169 overall).

    Reading between the lines, he's gone.

    Id agree, its like having a "regular season" thread and then never having any sub categories.

    This is disappointing. I have/had high hopes for asa.

    From his Wiki page. Not exactly what I want as the high point of a 5th round draft pick.

    Jackson was selected in the 5th round, 169 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. He is probably most known for returning a punt for a touchdown against the Detroit Lions during a preseason NFL game, and then started doing the famous Gangnam Style dance. Although, the play was negated by a holding penalty. [1]

    He probably needs to hire a new supplier - most times guys get caught it's because the person selling the PED s mis--label them, telling the athlete it's a substance it's not tested for (there are hundreds of types of steroids and tests are for certain specific ones) when it actually is.

    Shame he did this. I guess practice squad and lower tier guys hoping to start feel they need to do this to break through.

    He's an idiot. Disappointing because he seemed to have the attirbutes necessary to succeed with some seasoning...except for the brain, evidently. Hard to believe he'll be playing for the Ravens again.
