That's something I was wondering about.
My understanding was that he couldn't serve his suspension without being on a roster. But... that doesn't make sense. That makes guys totally unsignable in a very unfair way.
It makes much more sense that if you're unsigned and miss X number of games, those games count at least somewhat toward your suspension.
I looked for the rule on that on NFL.com but I couldn't find anything referring to it.
