    ATLANTA (AP) — The NFL has suspended Atlanta Falcons linebacker Robert James for four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

    A team spokesman confirms the suspension Thursday.

    The 26-year-old James played in only one game and did not record a tackle. James, from Arizona State, was a fifth-round pick by the Falcons in 2008. He missed his rookie season with a concussion.

    James' suspension begins with the Falcons' Sept. 12 opener at Pittsburgh. He will be eligible for the Oct. 10 game at Cleveland.

    That could torpedo their whole season.

    What's the opposite of when a person screams "Championship!" over an insignificant signing?

    "First Overall Draft Pick!"

    I mean he is not a key player for the Falcons. It is not like Matt Ryan is going to miss 4 games due to a suspension. We are talking a 5th rd pick from 08 who has played in 1 game and had 0 tackles. We have seen the NFL gives guys with great talent 2nd and 3rd chances when you are a 5th rd pick who has shown nothing the league is less forgiving.

    Why can't these guys stop smoking dope? You know that's what it is, most likely.
