Former Falcons DL Ra’Shede Hageman Suspended 6 Games For Domestic Violence

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media is reporting that former Falcons DL Ra’Shede Hageman has been suspended six games for a domestic violence issue.

The Falcons have placed Hageman on the commissioner’s exempt list coming out of the preseason before cutting him loose just a few days later.

A report later surfaced that he was facing three misdemeanors for a domestic violence incident that occurred back in March.

The incident involves the mother of his child. The charges against Hageman include interference with a call for emergency help, battery family violence and cruelty to children in the third degree.

There has been any reported interest in him since he was waived a few weeks ago.

The Falcons were reportedly in contact with the NFL regarding Hageman, and elected to deactivate Hageman for Week 1’s game. Although, they said it was because of their defense plans.

Hageman, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Falcons back in 2014. He was in the third year of his four-year, $5,335,842 contract and set to make a base salary of $905,076 for the 2017 season when he was waived by Atlanta.

In 2016, Hageman appeared in all 12 games for the Falcons and recorded 18 total tackles and two sacks.
