Patriots' Julian Edelman reportedly violated NFL's PED policy, appealing suspension

Patriots receiver Julian Edelman is facing a potential four-game suspension for testing positive for a banned substance, ESPN reported Thursday.

The automatic four-game suspension is under appeal, Adam Schefter reported. According to an unidentified league source, Edelman said that he's taken "hundreds of tests before" and that he has never failed one.

The Patriots' first four games in 2018 are against the Texans, Jaguars, Lions and Dolphins. Should his appeal not be granted, Edelman would lose $470,588.20 in base salary alone.

Edelman, 32, missed all of the 2017 season after he tore his ACL.
