Former Mizzou standout Kentrell Brothers suspended 9 weeks by NFL
Kentrell Brothers has been suspended by the NFL for a second time, per multiple reports. This time, it’s for 9 weeks.
Brothers is currently a free agent, and if another team signs him before the start of the 2020 season, they’ll have to wait 9 games for his services. The start of Training Camp is quickly approaching.

Following his spectacular year, the Vikings drafted Brothers in the 5th round of the 2016 NFL Draft (No. 160 overall). He played for Minnesota through the 2019 season.
In 4 career NFL seasons, Brothers has made 54 tackles and 1 sack.
