According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Chicago Bears’ backup tight end Gabe Miller has been suspend for four games due to violating the leagues’ policy on performance enhancing drugs. #Bears TE Gabe Miller is suspended without pay for the first 4 games of 2013 for violating @NFL policy on performance enhancing substances — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) June 4, 2013 Miller is already trying to save any chance of making the Bears’ roster by releasing a statement through the team. I would like to apologize to the entire Bears organization as well as our fans for taking a substance during the offseason that is prohibited by the NFL without a medical exemption,” Miller said.  “While it was an isolated incident, I regret the poor judgment I showed and accept full responsibility for this mistake along with the punishment that comes with it.  In the meantime I will continue to work hard and contribute in any way I can.  I look forward to having the opportunity to make this up to the people that I have disappointed. As ProFootballtalk points out, due to the fact that the league can’t specify as to why a player was suspended, this leaves the door open for said player to say anything they want as to avoid getting the label and stigma of a juicer. Before the suspension Miller was already facing an uphill battle to make the roster. With this Miller is now tumbling off the hill. Need NFL Tickets?
