LaVon Brazill suspended at least one year for violating NFL’s substance abuse policy

The suspensions keep on coming on a busy Thursday from the league offices as Indianapolis Colts wide receiver LaVon Brazill is the third NFL player to be suspended by the league in less than an hour.

Brazill joins Dion Jordan and Rokevious Watkins as players hit with a suspension, which is sure to spoil their plans for the Fourth of July, but unlike those players who received four-game suspensions for their offenses, Brazill is facing a suspension of at least one year, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

This is Brazill’s second suspension for violating the league’s drug policy. He was suspended for four games in 2013 after smoking marijuana. At the time of his suspension, the second-year receiver said, he was choosing money over marijuana. That didn’t last long.

Brazill vowed to change his behavior last year after the Colts stuck by him when he said he was done with smoking pot.

“I shot myself in the foot on that. I didn’t take that serious, but now I see that it’s serious,” Brazill said when asked about changing his ways earlier. “Like I said, I’m putting that in the past and I’m moving forward now.”

“No more of this. No more of this,” Brazill said. “This is out of my life and I’m done.”

With the emergence of T.Y. Hilton and the drafting of former Ole Miss receiver Donte Moncrief, not to mention the presence of Reggie Wayne and third-year tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen, one has to wonder if Brazill’s latest transgressions will result in his NFL career going up in smoke.
