Free-agent WR Sanders suspended 10 games


The Sports Xchange

Free-agent wide receiver Ace Sanders, who was waived by the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier this month, has been suspended by the NFL for the first 10 games of the season, The Sports Xchange has learned.

Despite reports that Sanders had looked good this offseason, the Jaguars surprisingly waived him on July 17. The Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions reportedly expressed some interest in him, but the suspension likely ended any chance of him signing with a team this year.

A fourth-round pick in 2013, Sanders caught 51 passes for 484 yards as a rookie. But, in 2014, the 5-foot-7 receiver caught just six balls as he was used mostly as a return specialist (7.1-yard average on punt returns).
