Recent suspensions of Ndamukong Suh and James Harrison have brought renewed attention to the NFL suspension policy. However, neither of these rank among the all-time most ridiculous suspensions in league history.
Ridiculous has multiple definitions.
Occasionally, the NFL is heavy-handed when doling out temporary pink slips. The suspension will be disproportionate to the offense or the league is delving too deeply into the personal lives of their employees.
Other times, the conduct that necessitates the punishment is mind-boggling.
Whatever the reason, these suspensions warrant a place in the discussion of the most ridiculous in league history.
