Chargers reserve safety Roderic Teamer has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2020 regular season for violating the NFL policy on substances of abuse, the team announced Monday.
An undrafted rookie in 2019, Teamer signed with Los Angeles shortly after the draft and filled in admirably for an injured Derwin James and Adrian Phillips. The Tulane product started six games, appeared in seven and recorded 40 tackles and an interception.
Teamer is again projected to back up James, who returned from a stress fracture for the final five games of 2019. He is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games and can return to the Chargers' active roster following their Week 4 game at Tampa Bay.
