National Football League suspends former Browns bust Justin Gilbert for a year

21 June 2017

Gilbert was originally suspended four games on May 25th for violating the substance and abuse policy. While Cleveland did move on from Gilbert after the 2015 National Football League season, he will be forever associated with the Browns' other first-round bust from that draft in quarterback Johnny Manziel.

After testing positive again, Gilbert was suspended for at least a year by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. His season-long suspension likely stems from an additional violation of that policy. He played in 12 games for the Steelers a year ago but hardly made an impact, registering just three tackles as well as three kick returns.

A North Korean foreign ministry official confirmed that Warmbier was released and left the country Tuesday morning. Secretary of State Tillerson said on June 13, 2017, that North Korea released the jailed USA university student.

The No. 8 overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft amassed 42 tackles, nine passes defended, and one interception in three seasons. Gilbert played sparingly in his one year with the Steelers, appearing in 12 games and starting in none of them.

He was released on February 6th and it stands to reason the team knew some sort of suspension was coming down the pike. He is a free agent and will probably remained unsigned for the foreseeable future.
