Packers’ Demetri Goodson suspended four games for PED use

Friday April 8th, 2016

Green Bay Packers cornerback Demetri Goodson has been suspended four games for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing substance policy, the league announced Friday.

Goodson is now the second Green Bay player to be suspended for the first four games of next season, joining defensive lineman Mike Pennel, who violated the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.

Goodson was mostly a special teams contributor for the Packers last season, recording the fourth-most special teams tackles for Green Bay.

The Packers selected Goodson in the sixth round of the 2014 draft. He has played in 20 games over the last two seasons. Goodson could see more playing time on defense this season with the departure of Casey Hayward in free agency.
