    LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears linebacker Jerrell Freeman has been suspended without pay for four games for violating the NFLs policy on performance-enhancing substances, the team announced Monday.Freeman is the second high-profile Bears player to be suspended for PEDs in the past week. Former Pro Bowl wide receiver Alshon Jeffery received a four-game suspension for violating the leagues PED policy last Monday, and he is scheduled to miss three more games before he can return.Much like with Alshon, Im very disappointed, Bears coach John Fox said.Freeman, 30, signed a three-year contract worth $6 million guaranteed in the offseason. He is one of the Bears leading tacklers.Fox said the Bears take the suspensions seriously.We dont accept it. I think we put a lot of time and money into governing it and watching over it. Like I said before, while theyre in this building, unfortunately they dont live here, he said.Fox denied that the Bears have a PED problem.I dont think this is unique to the Bears. Its an issue everywhere in the league, he said. Thats why we have drug testing in any professional sport or even Olympic sports. It happens, unfortunately.Freeman, whose suspension begins immediately, is eligible to rejoin the team on Monday, Dec. 19 following the clubs home game versus the Green Bay Packers.Freeman apologized in a statement posted on his Twitter account.Obviously, it puts us in a tough spot, Fox said. Thats why you usually see apologies, is I think they understand that, and its obviously a mistake and one they typically regret.

Just three months after confirming the franchises return to Los Angeles after 21 years away, the Rams made another dramatic move after climbing further than any other team in history to acquire the overall top pick, having originally been slated with the No 15 pick.The trade came at a price, with the Rams giving up their No 15 pick, two second-round picks (43 and 45), a third-rounder (76), plus a first and third-round pick next year. In addition to the top pick, the Rams will receive the Titans fourth (113) and sixth-round (177) picks this year. The Rams are in serious need of rebuilding after two disappointing seasons, while Titans general manager Jon Robinson said the move would enable his team to continue adding depth with six picks from the first 76 in this years draft. The Rams are returning to Los Angeles after 21 years away Being able to acquire six players in the top 76 this year, along with next year when you factor that into it - I am assuming five in the top three rounds - that is 11 players that we can add to this football team that should not only increase our depth, but give us good quality players at all those positions, he told the Titans website.dddddddddddd In the end we thought it was a decision that was best for this football team. It made sense for us to do it, and thats why we moved on it. We talked to several teams about the pick. There was interest in the pick, and in the end we thought this was the option that made the most sense for us... we think we can really bolster this roster with the picks that we now have.Los Angeles are expected to use the top pick to target a quarterback, although the exact player wont be known until April 28. It will be the sixth time the Rams have selected the No 1 overall in franchise history.
