Julian Edelman’s appeal didn’t go as planned

The New England Patriots wide receiver had his appeal to fight the NFL’s decision to suspend him four games for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy denied on Wednesday.

The 32-year old, who missed the entire 2017 season due to a torn ACL, has posted 425 receptions for 4,540 yards and 24 touchdowns over a span of eight seasons with the Patriots.

If the suspension is upheld, he will forfeit approximately $1 million in salary, and won’t be eligible to return to action until Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts on October 4.
