Agent QB Mark Sanchez Suspended Four Games for Violating PED Policy
Apr 16 2018 by Marjorie Miles
Sanchez served as a secondary backup for Chicago rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, the second pick of last year's NFL Draft, last season and did not throw a pass for the Bears.
Mark Sanchez responded to the announcement that he was suspended for four games with a post on Instagram where he - in addition to responding to the suspension itself - gave a bit of a glimpse into what drug testing is like for an National Football League player. He is now a free agent.
Sanchez, who is now unemployed, said in a statement he tested positive for a substance on the league's banned list. The suspension is for a violation of the NFL's performance-enhancing substances policy. He says he has been "subject to 73 drug tests" and "all but one have been clean".
"The timing and results of my tests establish circumstances of unknowing supplement contamination, not the use of performance enhancing substances".

His career got off to a fast start in NY after he helped guide the Jets to the AFC championship game in each of his first two seasons in the NFL.
Sanchez's last start came on Thanksgiving in 2015 with the Philadelphia Eagles-a 45-14 loss to the Detroit Lions at Ford Field.
Sanchez played for USC from 2006-08, throwing for 3,207 yards and 34 touchdowns as a junior in 2008 in leading the Trojans to a 12-1 record.
