Former Bears QB Mark Sanchez given four-game suspension for PED violation

Former Bears QB Mark Sanchez given four-game suspension for PED violation

The veteran quarterback has been suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing substance policy, the league announced. Starting nearly every game over four years, Sanchez threw more interceptions (69) than he did touchdowns (68).

The former No. 5 overall pick by the Jets has a career 37-35 record as a starter with 15,219 passing yards and as many touchdowns (86) as interceptions (86).

Sanchez responded to the news by releasing a statement on his Instagram page.

He also said that he passed the tests before and after the positive test, which he believes is a sign that he was not cheating and that further confirms his belief that he ingested a tainted substance.

"Sanchez is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games".

"During the past 9 years as an National Football League player I have been subject to 73 drug tests - an average of over 8 tests per season", he wrote.

"The timing and results of my tests establish circumstances of unknowing supplement contamination, not the use of performance enhancing substances". He says he was tested both before and after the positive test, and those came back clean. Experts in the field have advised me that an athlete seeking to gain the benefit of the performance enhancing substance would take the substance in large quantities, over several weeks.

However, Sanchez said he accepts responsibility.
