Petitgout suspension is steroid-related



Got a little more information on Luke Petitgout's suspension.

NFL senior vice president of public relations Greg Aiello tells us Petitgout will indeed have to serve a four-game suspension for -- it turns out -- a violation of the league's steroid policy. Petitgout is a free agent after his release on Saturday, so all teams were notified via Monday's daily personnel notice.

If and when Petitgout signs with another club, he will still have to serve the suspension. You can rest assured the Bucs caught wind of this before it was released, which played at least some role in the decision to part ways.
