Bears WR Jalen Saunders Suspended 10 Games

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Bears WR Jalen Saunders has been suspended 10 games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

This is Saunders’ second suspension in the past month.

Saunders, 22, is a former fourth-round pick of the Jets back in 2014. Since entering the league, Saunders has already played for four teams, so his career hasn’t gotten off to a great start.

The Saints signed him off of the Seahawks’ practice squad in November of last year, but was later traded ot the Patriots for a conditional 2018 seventh-round pick. He lasted just four days in New England before he was waived.

Chicago signed him to their practice squad at the start of the season.

In 2014, Saunders appeared in nine games, but caught just one pass for seven yards, while contributing 245 total punt and kick return yards for the Saints.
