Free-agent NT Jason Ferguson was suspended for the first eight games of the 2010 season, according to a report on Yahoo! Sports, after violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Ferguson's suspension is a steep one since he also had been suspended for violating NFL drug policy in 1999, having missed four games after an anabolic steroid showed up during a urine test.
He played for the Dolphins the past two seasons, though his ’09 season was cut short after nine games by a season-ending quadriceps injury. The Dolphins had not shown interest in re-signing the 35-year-old though they have not said whether they are willing to bring him back or not.
