Chris Herndon IV Suspended Four Games

Chris Herndon

Second-year tight end Chris Herndon will be suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL's policy on substances of abuse, the New York Jets announced on Friday.

The league stated that Herndon can participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.

Herndon pleaded guilty in January to driving while intoxicated in New Jersey in June 2018.

According to the police report, Herndon crashed into a Toyota Land Cruiser and totaled the vehicle, which was transporting a vintage automobile. He failed a sobriety test and had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.14 percent, well above New Jersey's legal limit (below 0.08 percent).

Neither Herndon nor the 76-year-old driver was seriously injured.

A first-time offender is usually handed a two-game suspension, but according to NFL.com, Herndon received four games, not two, because a woman at the scene later claimed bodily harm due to the crash.

A fourth-round pick out of Miami past year, Herndon had a promising rookie season, playing in all 16 games with 12 starts. Commissioner Roger Goodell can dole out additional discipline when determining suspensions if he determines there were aggravating circumstances involved. One eyewitness told police that Herndon was driving in excess of 100 miles per hour. Plus, his driver's license was revoked for 90 days. At this point, other tight ends who were on Herndon's tier should be moved ahead of him. Herndon finished his rookie season second on the team in catches with 39, receiving yards with 502 and touchdowns with four.

NY now also has veterans Eric Tomlinson and Daniel Brown and fourth-round pick Trevon Wesco at tight end, but all three are known mainly for their blocking skills.
