Randle was given a four-game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, stemming back to a February incident in his hometown of Wichita, Kan. The suspension is effective immediately, despite the fact that Randle cleared waivers last week and is currently a free agent.
That answers at least one question surrounding a bizarre couple of weeks for the former fifth-round draft pick. Randle left the Cowboys’ facility and did not return several weeks ago, as team officials said he was dealing with personal issues. At the same time, reports surfaced that Randle was facing a suspension for the incident in February. The charges were eventually dropped, but he was arrested for unlawful possession of marijuana, and he was also investigated for a domestic violence claim from the mother of his son.
