Bills Tried To Trade OT Seantrel Henderson, Now Facing 10-Game Suspension

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Bills OT Seantrel Henderson was the subject of trade talks ahead of this year’s deadline.

However, the Bills were unable to swing a deal, even though there were some notable teams in the market for an offensive tackle like the Vikings and Seahawks.

Henderson is now facing a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL’s Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. He’s currently appealing the ruling and a final decision is expected to come this week.

Henderson has been battling Crohn’s disease and has undergone serious offseason surgeries as a result of the disease. Henderson has used marijuana to deal with the pain resulting from the illness.

Last week, Henderson missed practice to witness the birth of his son.

Henderson previously served a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s drug policy, which he later explained was due to the use of  medicinal marijuana to treat his disease.

“I’ve got doctors telling me this is the No. 1 medicine that would help your disease,” Henderson said last month. “You try to tell that to the league and it seems like they didn’t care too much.”

 

Henderson, 24, is a former seventh-round pick of the Bills back in 2014. He’s in the third year of his four-year, $2,270,880 rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $600,000 for the 2016 season.

In 2016, Henderson has been active for one game.
