NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata has been suspended six games after violating the NFL’s PED policy.

Onyemata took to social media Friday stating he tested positive for a banned substance.

According to the post, Onyemata says he will miss part of the 2021 NFL season while suspended. “As I have never knowingly taken anything that could cause a positive test, we are currently in the process of testing the supplements I was taking at the time of the test,” Onyemata wrote online.
