Falcons’ Joe Hawley suspended four games for PED violation
 
Falcons backup offensive lineman Joe Hawley has been suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances.

The Falcons announced the suspension on the team’s official website.

Hawley, who has played in six games with no starts this year, will be eligible to return on Dec. 17, the day after the Falcons’ game against the Giants.

This is where the cynical start the Adderall countdown, in 3, . . . 2, . . . 1.

UPDATE: 5:16 p.m. ET: Hawley’s agent, Kevin Omell, has issued a statement, via the NFLPA. It reads, as follows:

“In September, Joe Hawley made a mistake by taking an Adderall pill. He did not file the paperwork to apply for an exemption for this medication, and now understands that the NFL/NFLPA drug policies have strict rules.

He is sincerely sorry to his teammates, coaches and Falcons fans for the consequences of this oversight. Joe will work diligently every day of this suspension to stay in top football shape and be ready to help the team continue the success they’ve achieved thus far this season. He has chosen to be immediately accountable for the situation which is why he will not exercise his appeal rights and will begin serving the suspension immediately.”

It's a stimulant. Think crack but less harmful. They use it to slow down people with ADHD since it works backwards on them, but everyone else uses it to stay up late, work longer, etc.
