Should NFL teams who have multiple players suspended over multiple seasons forfeit draft picks?

The NFL has a policy fining teams a portion of players salaries but this week Randy Gregory and David Irving of the Cowboys were both suspended, marking the sixth straight season multiple Cowboys were suspended for drug or conduct policy violations. Is it time for the NFL to start taking away draft picks?

    Yes...yes they should. NFL teams need to learn to be more responsible and not enable problem players by forking over millions. They need to do a better job of fostering a more stable and positive culture that shows that repeated bad behavior is unacceptable. The Cowboys don't do that. Teams need to be held responsible for the monsters they create. Get these idiots out of the league, don't reward them with phat contracts.

    Nope, many already complain that NFL teams have too much control/power over tier players. Any more control would bring up some very unfavorable comparisons, Comparisons they already have some issues with.

      Wouldn't want to hurt the feelings of overpaid, cheating, cry babies.

  • Either draft picks or salary cap space. Or both.

      You need to learn the difference between a Corporation and Franchise. Yes the NFL has an ultimate ownership over the Franchise(to those who don't believe/understand this thing of the NBA with Clippers and Sterling), BUT Franchise Owners do have control over the franchise in general.

    Not unless the team is facilitating PED use amongst its players, which I highly doubt. But there could be a rogue trainer situation like the Yankees had with Roger Clemens' trainer, Brian McNamee.

    Irving is about to be a free agent, not really on the Cowboys anymore... not that it matters.

    They could start taking draft picks, but why? The fact that you have a guy suspended should be punishment enough. If they don't want teams picking up these players, then ban them from the league. But if they are allowed to play, then what's the point of further punishing the teams?
