The NFL announced the suspension of former Gonzaga Bulldogs basketball player Demetri Goodson because of a violation of the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. He will miss the first four games of the season.

Most of the world knows Goodson as a cornerback for the Green Bay Packers, but Gonzaga fans know him as the guard for three seasons at Gonzaga, and one of the more thrilling highlights of recent NCAA Tournaments for the Zags.

Goodson played three seasons at Gonzaga, averaging a 5.1 points over 24.1 minutes per game. He was known for his incredible speed, which on display in the winner against Western Kentucky. Goodson transferred to Baylor to finish out his college career, and he is the only player in NCAA history to start both an NCAA Tournament game and a BCS Bowl game.

Goodson was drafted in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL draft. He saw time in 14 games last season for the Packers, accumulating 10 total tackles.
