Former LSU Star Jalen Collins Suspended By NFL For Fourth Time
A former LSU football standout has been suspended by the NFL, yet again.
This marks the fourth suspension for Collins, who was first suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season, before being suspended twice in 2017, for the first 10 games of the season, and then later four more games in 2017.
He missed the entire 2017 season, due to the suspensions, and the latest setback may very well signal the end of a once promising career.
The 25-year old Collins redshirted in 2011 at LSU, before playing in 13 games as a freshman in 2012, compiling 30 tackles and two interceptions.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Collins played in 13 more games for the Tigers in 2013, including two starts, recording 22 tackles and added two pass break-ups, before becoming a starter in 2014, when he accumulated 33 tackles and one interception.
A second-round pick by the Atlanta Falcons in the 2015 NFL Draft, Collins has racked up 48 tackles and two interceptions over two NFL seasons.
Collins, who was released by the Falcons in November, is currently a free agent.
