NFL suspends ex-Broncos punter Sauerbrun, sources say
Free agent punter Todd Sauerbrun has run afoul of the NFL again.
Two sources close to the situation said Sauerbrun has been suspended by the league for four games and he is expected to serve the suspension in the first four games of the season.
The suspension stems from a December 2007 incident with a Denver cab driver.
In June, Sauerbrun pleaded guilty to disturbing the peace. The remaining charges of simple assault and failure to a pay cab fare were dismissed as part of the plea. Sauerbrun was given 24 hours of public service, to be served through NFL Charities, and a one-year unsupervised deferred judgment. He has to pay $216 in court costs.
Shortly after the incident, Sauerbrun was cut by the Broncos. Denver coach Mike Shanahan said he released Sauerbrun because he was verbally abusive to responding police officers on the night of the incident. Sauerbrun has remained unsigned since.
Sauerbrun was suspended for four games in 2006, while with Denver, for using a banned substance. Sauerbrun is expected to appeal this suspension.

The Broncos house cleaning looks genius like, now doesn't it?
First: Walker gets a beat down in Sin City then follows that up with a slow start to camp and lingering knee troubles..shocker!!
Second: Ian (dwarf) Gold over values his worth on the FA market and his ego forces him to retire with no interest shown for his sevices..
Third: Hippy salad Henry is busted toking again and faces a year out of work and plenty of time to make more babies...
Fourth: Saurbuns gets suspended for four games because he can't handle his liquor and becomes a douche bag when intoxicated..
Now if Marshall can follow through with his maturity plan and put that craptastic part of his life behind him, we could have a normal season with only positive football related stories to talk about and look forward too..

4 games for pleading guilty to messing with a cab driver. Smells like Marshall might skate with 2.
