Former LSU, Falcons cornerback Jalen Collins suspended 10 games by NFL

Former LSU, Falcons cornerback Jalen Collins suspended 10 games by NFL

"Our decisions going forward will be based on what [coach] Dan [Quinn] and I feel is best for the team", general manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a statement.

Jalen Collins celebrates after recovering a fumble by the Green Bay Packers in the first half of the NFC Championship game in January.

It's a 10-game ban because this is Collins' second suspension for the same violation.

While suspended, Collins will be eligible to practice and play in preseason games.

Collins will miss the start of a second consecutive season while under National Football League suspension.

Collins, a third-year pro out of LSU, was suspended for the first four games last year for violating the same policy.

Quinn didn't immediately announce any discipline forthcoming for Collins, with teams not typically at liberty to comment on such matters.

Collins was a second-round draft pick by the Falcons back in 2015.

The league said Collins, a cornerback, will be eligible to return to the active roster on Tuesday, Nov. 21, following the Seattle Seahawks' game. His trade value likely has declined as well because of the suspensions. Watch for second-year corner C.J. Goodwin to take over the majority of his snap counts for the time being.

Since then, he's appeared in 24 games and started eight, tallying two interceptions and 10 passes defensed. Collins has been taking reps against quarterback Matt Simms and Alek Torgersen and receivers like Nick Williams, Josh Magee, Reggie Davis and players lower on the Falcons' depth chart.
