The news that Texas recipient Will Fuller has stopped six games in violation of the league’s PED policy came as news to many. Including obviously the Texas.
A Texas spokesman told PFT that the team learned of Fuller’s arrest on Monday from Fuller̵
If true, this means that they did not know during negotiations with other teams (mostly Packers) about potential trade in the deadline, which arrived four weeks ago. This also means that the Texans did not know about it until they recently cut off the Kenny Steels receiver.
With Stills exempt from exemption, Texans are likely to pay the remainder of their salary as a termination payment. They could have detained him if they had known there was a need for the position.
The Texas added that they are still waiting for an official announcement from the league. Fuller publicly revealed the positive result and the subsequent suspension on Monday.
It is possible that Fuller recently received a positive test notice and chose not to appeal the decision to serve five of the six games this year, reducing the number of games he will have to endure after signing his next contract. He is currently in the fifth year of his rookie contract and the absence of the next five games will cost him $ 2.98 million.
