new-york-jets-steroidsAs a consequence for a second suspension off their roster, the New York Jets faces a fine from the National Football League under a newly adopted policy.

Jets rookie quarterback Erik Ainge tested positive for a banned diuretic and was slapped with a four-game suspension for violating NFL’s steroids and related substances policy.

Ainge’s teammate Jesse Chatman was the first to commit doping infraction when he tested positive for bumetanide. He was penalized with a four-game suspension without pay a week prior the start of the season.

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones has figured in several run-ins with authorities with the recent one taking place last month at a Dallas hotel in what one news article has described as “an alcohol-related scuffle with a bodyguard”. Pacman was suspended for four games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.
