The NFL season is quickly approaching, and that means every team needs all of their best players ready for the season. After coming off a horrible loss at the Super Bowl, you would think the Atlanta Falcons would have all of their ducks in a row, ready to take on the new season with a clean slate.

This is not the case for the Falcons, unfortunately. Jalen Collins, a cornerback for Atlanta, has been suspended for 10 games for using PEDs. He was suspended in 2016 for four games under the same offense. After he is able to be reinstated back on the roster, he may not have a spot in which to return, according to cbssports.com.

Collins has a history of problems, including substance abuse, and he failed multiple drug tests when he was playing at LSU. The Falcons took a chance when they drafted Jalen Collins back in 2015, and it has not gone exactly as planned. Once his suspension is over, it is unlikely he will continue with the Falcons.
