According to Howard Balzer, free agent OLB Mike Neal has been suspended two weeks for an undisclosed violation.
It’s been a while since he heard anything regarding Neal.
At the start of the regular season, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported that the NFL was continuing their investigation into the PED allegations involving Neal.
Neal’s name was notably absent in the release from the NFL and there have been a few reports that mentioned a possible connection between him and the Guyer Institute.
The allegations stem from comments made by former anti-aging clinic intern Charlie Sly, who was taped in the Al-Jazeera documentary. It’s worth mentioning that Sly has since recanted his quotes.
Neal, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Packers back in 2010. He played out his rookie contract with the team before signing a two-year extension back in 2014.
Neal worked out for the Seahawks and Lions several months ago, but there hasn’t been a lot of buzz about opportunities for him since then.
Last year, Neal appeared in all 16 games for the Packers and recorded 36 tackles, four sacks, and a forced fumble. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 95 edge defender out of 110 qualifying players.
