Former Jacksonville Jaguars' Ace Sanders has been suspended for ten games after failing another drugs test, according to reports.

According to ESPN, the wide receiver will miss the fist ten games of the 2015 season after violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy again.

Sanders was suspended for the first four games of last season whilst he was with the Jaguars. After his suspension was up, he struggled to cement himself in the rotation of receivers in the squad.

He only managed to accumulate 55 yards from six passes as the fourth round pick failed to find field time ahead of second round picks Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee and undrafted rookie Allen Hurns.

During his two seasons with the Jaguars, he only caught 57 passes for 539 yards and a touchdown.

Primarily drafted as a punt returner, Sanders struggled in this part of the field as well. He only managed to average 7.1 yards per return on 32 attempts.

The wide receiver was waived by the Jaguars on July 17 and hasn't been signed to another team since.

After he cleared the waivers and became a free agent, several teams were rumoured to be interested in Sanders' services. Some of these teams include the Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Dolphins, and the Detroit Lions.

Now he has a ten game suspension to his name, he doesn't look like an appealing prospect for any team. Especially after already being suspended once before, many teams will see him as too much of a risk and not enough of a benefit to hire for their squad.

The likelihood now is Sanders might struggle to find another team to play for in the NFL again.
