This offseason has already seen a multitude of NFL players who have been suspended to begin the season.

Here are 10 notable players who will start the season off the field due to suspension. The full list of player suspensions can be found at Spotrac. Listed are how many games they will be suspended for, and also a brief blurb as to why they are suspended.
