Edelman reportedly tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. News of his suspension was leaked on June 7, the final day of Patriots' minicamp.
According to the rest of the story, Edelman and his team plan to launch a "vigorous defense" that will center on two key points. The substance for which Edelman tested positive reportedly wasn't recognized by the league's drug testers (a test is presumptively positive if a player's testosterone to epitestosterone ratio is greater than 4-to-1, according to the league's policy on PEDs). Edelman's defense also plans to highlight the league's apparent mishandling of "documentation and delivery" of the test results.
