Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman suspended for trying to bribe NFL drug-test collector

According to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN, a Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman has been suspended for trying to bribe an NFL drug-test collector.

Schefter reported earlier this morning that Cowboys’ right tackle La’el Collins was suspended after he attempted to bribe an NFL drug-test collector.

From ESPN:

Players cannot be suspended for positive marijuana tests under the NFL’s new collective bargaining agreement, but Collins’ issue was multiple missed tests and also trying to bribe the test collector, according to sources.

The NFL initially was preparing to suspend Collins five games for his actions, but the NFL Players Association — aware of the intended five-game suspension — helped negotiate a reduction to what would have been a two-game ban.

Collins has since appealed the suspension but the arbitrator ruled that the suspension should be increased back to five games.
