St. Louis Rams' WR Stedman Bailey suspended four games

There has been a lot of positive publicity for the St. Louis Rams lately.

Not only did they land former Auburn Tigers’ offensive tackle Greg Robinson, former Pittsburgh Panthers’ defensive tackle Aaron Donald and former Florida State Seminoles’ defensive back Lamarcus Joyner with their first three picks, but they made former Missouri Tigers’ defensive end Michael Sam the first openly gay player drafted when they selected him with the 249th-overall pick in the seventh round of the draft.

All of that positive press might be about to take a hit.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, wide receiver Stedman Baiely has been suspended four games for violating the league’s performance enhancing substance abuse policy.

Repoport adds that a source says Bailey did not take any performance enhancing substances.

Bailey made 17 receptions for 226 yards and rushed two times for 33 yards and a touchdown as a rookie in 2013.
