In a tweet, the NFL verified James Thrash, the hearing officer in the Buccaneers star’s appeal, verified the restriction.
Evans was at first notified of the penalty in a letter from NFL executive Jon Runyanon Monday, after the league stated he broke unneeded roughness and unsportsmanlike conduct guidelines when he trucked Marshon Lattimore throughout a skirmish in the Tampa Bay vs. New Orleans video game.
“You knocked your opponent to the ground, and a melee ensued involving players from both teams,” Runyan composed in the judgment. “Your aggressive conduct could have caused serious injury to your opponent.”
According to Adam Schefter, Evans will just lose $62,000 rather of $715,000 while out, thanks to an offseason agreement restructure.
