Raiders WR Holmes suspended for four games


[Raiders second-year wide receiver Andre Holmes was suspended for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, according to an NFL press release Saturday, Steve Corkran of Bayareanewsgroup reports.

“Andre Holmes of the Oakland Raiders has been suspended without pay for the team’s first four games of the 2013 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.

Holmes will be eligible to return to the Raiders’ active roster on Monday, September 30 following the team’s September 29 game against the Washington Redskins.

Holmes is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.”]

So the question must be asked. How much do you really have to suck in order to take a performance-enhancing drug just to be mediocre? Of course we all know about how those ole rebel Raiders used to roid up to win. I guess old habits die-hard.
