Jets cornerback and former Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall was suspended for the first 4 games of the 2017 NFL season for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs, the league announced Friday.
Marshall will be suspended without pay, although he will be allowed to participate in all offseason activities, as well as preseason practices and games.
After leaving Auburn, Marshall played the past 2 seasons in the NFL — with the Jaguars in 2015 and the Jets in 2016. He switched to cornerback, where he has 18 tackles in 21 career games. Marshall also contributed to both teams in the return game.
Marshall passed for 4,508 yards and 34 touchdowns during his 2 seasons of game action for the Tigers. During his junior season in 2013, Marshall helped Auburn win the SEC championship and reach the BCS National Championship game.
