The first night that River Falls Vince blocked a FG and then later had an int. Had all of us scrammbling to find out who 98 was, we thought we had signed Hicks since he'd been released by Gunther earlier in the day. Finally an old man at practice told us who he was, we thought we had a superstar on the roster, problem was that was the only 2 things i saw him do, quick bang but no continued eruption.

Unless we bring in another OLB, it looks like Turk will make this team.

Report: NFL Suspends Former Chiefs LB Vince Redd Four Games

Another twist to the story.

OLB Vince Redd, who was waived by the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday, has been suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for four games beginning with the first week of the 2009 regular season, Scout.com has confirmed through a league source.

With the Chiefs set to acquire two players from the Dolphins in this morning's trade, two players had to be released.

Vince Redd was one of them.

It was presumed that he was released because, well, he hasn't really done anything during the preseason. No tackles, no assists in two games. But this development of an apparent violation of some sort of league policy is intriguing.

So that begs the question of whether the Chiefs about Redd's potential suspension this morning. Perhaps the Chiefs knew what the violation was and released him before it became official. Or perhaps it's a coincidence.

As Adam Caplan noted, Redd can still be signed by a team should he pass through waivers. His four-game suspension would begin after the September 5th cut down to 53 players

Former Chiefs OLB Vince Redd's four-game suspension was reportedly for testing positive for Ephedra.
Redd violated the league's banned substances policy. Ephedra is often used for weight loss, but is also found in Sudafed. Redd is currently a free agent.

Gotta suck if you get cut because you took Sudafed - and were dumb enough to take Sudafed.
