Its about time NFL! WTF took so long. Dude was caught and arrested for doing lines in his car but somehow manages to play 13 games. Eric Smith lays a clean hit on the unfortunate Anquan Boldin and gets the hammer dropped immediately. I don't get this $hit.

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Matt Jones will be suspended for the final three games of the 2008 NFL season.

Per Jaguars.com, the NFL announced today that Jones’ suspension, for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, will begin immediately.

Jones was arrested in Arkansas in July and charged with possession of a controlled substance. He had been appealing the subsequent suspension, but that appeal has now been denied.

Jones is the Jaguars’ leading receiver, with 65 catches for 761 yards.

This means that Matt Light will be suspended for hitting a Dolphins player next March for three weeks.

Seems like he was arrested a year ago.

Interesting how the Giants and Steelers deal with their problem players versus Jax.

Coincidence those teams are going in opposite directions.

Jags got some bad karma for not nipping the Jones issue in the bud.

Hmm...now it makes sense.

On that "why do African Americans always get in trouble" thread or whatever it was called on the trib, I kept using Matt Light as an example of a Caucasian that got into trouble...

I was confusing Matt Jones with Matt Light.

Oh well, f 'em both.

Yeah. If we meet the cheaters in the post season, he will be suspended for that week.

Excellent point, and one I kept making when it happened. Yes, Santonio was forced to sit out a big game and we lost.....but it is over. It is rarely even mentioned on the boards, and more importantly, it is not a distraction for the team moving forward. Tomlin did an excellent job on this issue. Handle the problem, be done with it as opposed to ignore the problem and hope that it miraculously disappears on its own.
