NFLPA negotiated that.
Of note generally...
Absent a violation of the law, a suspension under the substance-abuse policy happens only if a player commits multiple violations. For players like Josh Gordon...thatís a lot of violations to rack up in only one year.
Once a player is in the substance-abuse program, he knows heís going to be tested. To end up getting suspended means that he has continued to test positive even when he knows heís going to be tested ó unless, of course, the subsequent violations come from failing to comply with the testing requirements.
