Panthers DE Frank Alexander Suspended 10 Games

The NFL has announced that Panthers DE Frank Alexander has been suspended without pay for next 10 games after violating league’s substance-abuse policy.

  • Alexander will be eligible to return to the active roster on Monday, December 15.

Alexander just got done serving a four-game suspension for the same exact violation, so this very disappointing news.

Alexander, 24, was taken by the Panthers in the fourth-round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He still has two years remaining on his four-year, $2.57 million rookie contract. Alexander has base salaries of $570,000 and $660,000 over the final two years of the agreement.

Last year, he appeared in 12 games and totaled 15 tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery for Carolina. According to Pro Football Focus, he played 239 snaps, but received a below-average rating, despite being decent run-defender.
