Former Jets QB Mark Sanchez has been suspended four games after violating the performance-enhancing drug policy, the league announced Friday.
Sanchez, who last played for the Jets in 2013, was the Bear's third-string quarterback last season. He claimed that "unknowing supplement contamination" was the reason for his drug test to turn up positive.
The 31-year-old took to Instagram to explain the whole story.
The Jets' fifth overall pick back in 2009, the USC product played four seasons with the Jets where he totaled 15,219 yards and 86 touchdowns. However, Sanchez always had a turnover problem as he also recorded 86 interceptions.
Sanchez made the 2009 NFL All-Rookie Team, and led the Jets to back-to-back AFC Championship games in 2009 and 2010.
