Rams release twice suspended cornerback Tyrique McGhee

The Los Angeles Rams waived cornerback Tyrique McGhee on Monday just two weeks after he was handed a five-game suspension for a violation of the NFL’s performance-enhancing drugs policy.

McGhee was suspended for two games last year as a member of the Rams practice squad for a separate PED policy offense.

McGhee was signed by the Rams an an undrafted free agent out of the University of Georgia last year. He did not play in a game for the team last season.

McGhee can serve the five-game suspension if he is not on a team. The suspension would cover the first five games of the upcoming season.
