Robert Quinn’s agent blasts league in statement over suspension

Robert Quinn

Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Robert Quinn received a two-game suspension Thursday for violating the NFL’s drug policy, and it resulted in one of the more critical rebuttals to a ban we’ve seen.

Quinn’s agent, Sean Kiernan, issued a statement on Twitter when the news broke going into detail of what happened. He writes that Quinn has a medical history of seizures which requires medication, and Quinn was suspended for a trace amount of the banned substance probenecid, which allegedly was the result of contamination. Quinn’s agent even specifically calls out an NFL attorney by name and says the league’s response was “tone deaf.”

The suspension comes on top of a broken hand that Quinn suffered during training camp. His season is off to a rough start, but he’ll be back for Week 3.
