    Posted by Michael David Smith on June 2, 2008, 7:02 p.m. EDT

    Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated is reporting that former Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman is facing an indefinite suspension after another violation of the league’s substance abuse policy.

    The report does not offer any specifics of the nature of the violation. Thurman missed the entire 2006 and 2007 seasons because of suspensions tied to drug and alcohol use. He was reinstated this year, but the Bengals released him last month.

    His agent, Safarrah Lawson, told Trotter, “We have not been notified of that at this point. I have no knowledge,” and added that Thurman, whose grandmother recently died, is “still dealing with some family issues.”

    Thurman was a 2005 second-round draft pick and was one of the league’s best defensive rookies that season. But his drug and alcohol problems have kept him off the field since then.

    So I have noticed. :lol:

    Did see one rather exciting 139 (129?) yard return of a missed FG last year. Those extra yards in the end zone sure do add a funky twist to the game.

    Did you ever see Ezra Landry? He is the 5'0 kick returner. Guy was fun to watch.

    5 foot kick returners make the CFL more of a circus freakshow than a football league
