Free Agent CB Morris Claiborne Facing Four-Game Suspension


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that free agent CB Morris Claiborne is facing a four-game suspension for violations of the substance abuse policy.

According to Rapoport, Claiborne is appealing and it could be reduced.

This may explain why he’s still available, even though a number of teams could use cornerback help. 

Claiborne recently worked out for the Vikings, but ultimately left Minnesota without a deal. 

Claiborne, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with Dallas before returning to the team on a one-year, $3 million for the 2016 season.

Last year, Claiborne departed for a one-year contract worth $5 million with the Jets and re-signed with New York to another one-year, $7 million deal last year.

In 2018, Claiborne appeared in 15 and recorded 57 total tackles, two interceptions, 14 pass defenses, and scored one defensive touchdown.
