Mark Sanchez 'blind-sided' by four-game PED ban from NFL

Mark Sanchez 'blind-sided' by four-game PED ban from NFL

Sanchez was suspended four games for a positive performance-enhancing drug test, the National Football League announced on Friday. Starting nearly every game over four years, Sanchez threw more interceptions (69) than he did touchdowns (68).

The former USC star was drafted by the New York Jets with the fifth overall pick in the 2009 draft.

Sanchez was lauded for his mentorship of quarterback Mitch Trubisky a year ago but never played a regular-season down.

The nine-year pro would be eligible for offseason and training-camp practices as well as preseason games if he were to land with a team.


Sanchez responded on social media, saying that he was "blind-sided" by the suspension.

Sanchez, who said he was blindsided by the suspension, said he had only tested positive for banned substances in one test.

He said he's taken 73 drug tests throughout his nine-year career in the National Football League and has taken the same regimen of supplements the past five years without issue. I have taken the same regimen of supplements for the past five years without any issues. "The timing and results of my tests establish circumstances of unknowing supplement contamination, not the use of performance enhancing drugs". "Both tests bracketing the one positive test were clean". The policy makes it each player's responsibility to avoid even the unwitting ingestion of a banned substance. "I look forward to getting back on the field this season." .
