Ravens TE Darren Waller Suspended At Least One Year, Placed On Suspended List

Update:

The Baltimore Ravens officially placed TE Darren Waller on the reserve/suspended list on Friday following the news that he’s been suspended for at least one year.

———–

The NFL has suspended Ravens TE Darren Waller for at least one year for violating league’s substance abuse policy,  according to Jeff Zrebiec.

Waller has previously suspended four games of the season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy and actually suspended during his college career after testing positive for marijuana.

This is obviously disappointing for the Ravens, considering they lost Dennis Pitta to another hip injury and already had a number of question marks at the position including former second-round pick Maxx Williams.

Waller, 24, is a former sixth-round pick of the Ravens. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2.39 million rookie contract and stands to make base salaries of $615,000 and $705,000 over the final two years of the agreement.

Waller made the transition to tight end after playing receiver in 2015.

In 2016, Waller appeared in 12 games for the Ravens and caught 10 passes for 85 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
