Jerrell Freeman, 4 game PED ban. Ugh...

Postby lukkynumber13 » Mon Nov 21, 2016 1:43 pm

Well at least the PEDs were helping him, unlike the ones Alshon was taking.

In all seriousness this SUCKS. Freeman has been a stud all season.

I would imagine this boosts the value of Danny T to instant LB1, and Nick Kwiatkowski should get 50-75% of ILB snaps so he should be added in most leagues but probably not started.

I would say that this should boost the numbers of the Bears' strong safety but we don't know who that is! HJQ was straight up benched yesterday in favor of Deon Bush, so IDK what to do there...

Just lost Trevathan, Martinez is likely out again, and I play a double header this week before the playoffs start and I definitely need to win both games to get in. Do I promote Kiwiatkowski off my taxi squad and start him with confidence, or should I reach out for a trade? This is for Team 1 in my signature, my starting LBs would be Eric Kendricks, Brandon Marshall and Kwiatkowski.

I think you roll with Nick K. Unless you can trade extremely cheap for a guy like Compton, Bellore, etc or pick up Korey Toomer or Edwin Jackson?

Thanks for the replies and help fellas! The only guy available on the wire is Edwin Jackson as it's an extremely deep league, but I think I'm just gonna go with Bruiser's advice and call him up and see what happens, thanks again fellas.

I would get Edwin Jackson on your team. Cut Devin Smith or Chris Moore or Qlover Quin if you have to. Edwin Jackson has been the second starting ILB in 3 or the last 4 games and his snap count has increased each starting game.

And now a 10 game ban for a repeat offense, possible concussion retirement?

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/fo ... story.html
Freeman's injury-wrecked season took a disturbing and downward turn Monday with his second suspension in the last year. This time, he's suspended without pay for 10 games for violating the league's policy against performance-enhancing drugs. For that same violation last November, he was suspended four games.

The veteran inside linebacker, who played one game this season before being placed on injured reserve Sept. 12, released a statement in which he attributed his latest positive drug test to pills he had been taking as a result of the concussion he suffered Sept. 10 in the season opener against the Falcons.

"Knowing my career may be over due (to) everything that came with the head injury (that's been purposely downplayed by me), memory loss and all, has actually been a bit of a struggle," Freeman wrote.

"That being said there's no excuse to cope with any problems by taking any kind of pills. I don't know my future but a big thanks to the Bears and the NFL, if I would have used their programs and services earlier than I did I wouldn't be in this situation. Sorry again for the distraction."

He serves 8 of the 10 this year, so will just miss the first 2 games in 2018. Still one of the 6 to 8 best linebackers in the league, so don't give up on him.

I will think of him going into next season the same way we thought of Bowman going into this season.
