Free Agent DT Robert Nkemdiche Suspended Two Weeks


Field Yates of ESPN reports that former Cardinals first-round DT Robert Nkemdiche has been suspended for two weeks by the NFL for an undisclosed violation of league policy. 

Nkemdiche, 25, was taken in the first round out of Ole Miss by the Cardinals back in 2016. He was in the final year of his four-year, $7.6 million contract and set to make a base salary of $1,122,808 for the 2019 season when the Cardinals waived him. 

Arizona declined Nkemdiche’s fifth-year option back in May and later moved on from him after he showed up to training camp out of shape. The Dolphins later signed him to a one-year, $1.16 million deal.

Miami activated Nkemdiche from the PUP list before waiving him soon after. 

In 2018, Nkemdiche appeared in 10 games for the Cardinals and recorded 32 tackles, 4.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a pass defense.
