Erin Henderson Suspended For Four Games

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Erin Henderson, who spent much of last season as the Minnesota Vikings' starting middle linebacker, has been suspended for four games by the National Football League for repeated violations of the league's Substance Abuse Policy.

Henderson was arrested for suspicion of DUI in November of 2013, and again on New Year's Day. He was also charged with DWI and for possession of ten grams of marijuana in late February after he was released by the Vikings.

Since his release, Henderson has generated almost no interest in the free agent market, despite still being relatively young (28 years old). To this point, the Vikings are the only team that Henderson has played for. He signed with the team as an undrafted free agent out of Maryland following the 2008 NFL Draft. He was on the team with his older brother E.J. Henderson, who was a star at Maryland and had been drafted by the Vikings in 2003.

Here's hoping that Erin Henderson has gotten assistance for his issues after his release from Minnesota.
