NFL suspended free agent OG Rodney Austin six games.
The suspension stems from a domestic violence incident that occurred back in April. A fringe player to begin with, no team will go near Austin with so much off-field baggage. It appears the 26 year old will have to find a new line of work. Tue, Sep 8, 2015 05:03:00 PM

Free agent OG Rodney Austin has been sentenced to 12 months supervised probation.

He also must complete a batterer's intervention program after being found guilty of four misdemeanors in his domestic violence case on Tuesday. Austin will have to let his legal situation cool before even thinking about playing football.

Free agent OG Rodney Austin was found guilty of assault on a female, assault on a child under 12, and misdemeanor larceny in North Carolina on Tuesday.

Austin was arrested in April and will be sentenced on Thursday. The Lions immediately cut Austin after his arrest, but left the door open for his return should he be cleared of any wrongdoing. That door has now been slammed shut. The 26-year-old's NFL "career" is likely over. Austin appeared in one game.

A second-year undrafted free agent, Austin was considered a decent candidate for the 53-man roster. Perhaps he'll be stashed on the practice squad.
