The NFL drug tests their players and one Dallas Cowboys right tackle is in some hot water after if was discovered that he tried to bribe someone responsible in collecting those tests.

La’el Collins has been suspended for five games after he allegedly tried to bribe a drug test collector from the NFL. ESPN reports that he allegedly tried to bribe a drug test collector, and he was originally suspended for two games for a positive test.

Now La’el Collins is suspended for even more games due to trying to pay his way out of the situation. It was not noted what La’el Collins testes positive for as of this writing. It was reported that he failed multiple tests.

The NFL’s collective bargaining agreement prevents the league from suspending players for popping for weed, so that seems to eliminate a positive marijuana test.

La’el Collins’ attorney tried to appeal the decision, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the league believes that La’el Collins’ suspension will be upheld. He tried to provide explanations for his failed tests.

Collins signed with the Cowboys in 2015, and if the league goes through with this suspension then he will be back on October 18th. So, his first game would be October 31st’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.
