He will likely receive a four-game suspension for his PED violation and will forfeit $310,294 of his 2018 salary and bonus.
Turbin, 28, is a former fourth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2012. He was waived by the Seahawks during the 2015 season and later claimed off of waivers by the Browns.
Turbin’s stay in Cleveland was short-lived, as the Browns wound up waiving him after just a few months. The Cowboys later signed him to a contract and gave him the opportunity to finish out the year in Dallas.
The Colts signed Turbin in March of last year and brought him back on a two-year, $2.7 million contract. He landed on the team’s injured reserve in October of last year after sustaining a dislocated elbow.
In 2017, Turbin appeared in six games and rushed for 53 yards on 23 carries (2.3 YPC) to go along with nine receptions for 56 yards receiving and one touchdown.
