Patriots’ WR Julian Edelman’s appeal was denied today, per source. His four-game suspension stands.

Well that’s a bummer. The NFL has no clue what Julian Edelman took, but they are suspending him for it anyways. I’m all for suspending players that took a substance that is banned, but when you come out and flat out say that you can’t identify what Edelman took so you’re suspending him, that’s sort of crazy.
Also, what’s truly baffling to me is that Edelman gets 4 games for a substance the NFL doesn’t recognize, but Jameis Winston gets 3 games for sexually assaulting a female UBER driver. The NFL really is a baffling organization.
Edelman will miss the Patriots first 4 games against the Texans, Jaguars, Lions and Dolphins.
