Ravens FS Christian Thompson Suspended Four Games
Baltimore Ravens safety Christian Thompson has been suspended for four games without pay for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
Thompson was a fourth round pick out of South Carolina State in 2012 and appeared in seven games last season, primarily on special teams. He recorded no tackles as a rookie before ending the season on injured reserve with a knee injury. Thompson was expected to compete for a starting spot in 2013 after the departure of veteran safeties Ed Reed and Bernard Pollard.
The NFL suspension will cost Thompson $112,941 of his $480,000 base salary, through the loss of four $28,235 game checks. "We have been aware of this situation for some time," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement. Thompson is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.
