Jacksonville Jaguars offensive lineman Cam Robinson issued an apology after the NFL handed down a four-game suspension for violating its performance-enhancing drug policy.
Robinson, who was drafted out of Alabama by the Jags in 2017 in the second-round, released a statement after the punishment was made official.
‘As a veteran leader in the locker room, I always want to set a good example and my actions in this instance are not a reflection of that goal,’ Robinson said. ‘I apologize to the fans, my coaches, and most importantly, my teammates.
‘It hurts me that I cannot be out there with my brothers at the start of the regular season.
‘I will attack training camp the same way I have for the last six seasons, to make sure I am ready both mentally and physically.’
Jacksonville Jaguars offensive lineman Cam Robinson has been suspended four games for violating the NFL’s league policy on performance-enhancing drugs
Robinson agreed a big deal last offseason, signing a $52.75million, three-year contract

His team also dropped a statement acknowledging the league’s decision in the matter.
‘We are aware of the four-game suspension incurred today by OL Cam Robinson,’ the Jaguars’ statement read. ‘While we certainly respect the NFL’s ruling and are disappointed with this development, we will support Cam as he works his way through the suspension.
‘We are confident that Cam and our team will rise above this challenge as we collectively move forward.’
Robinson agreed to a big contract last offseason, inking a $52.75million deal that will last three-years after he was franchise tagged in March of 2022.
But the offensive lineman sat out his last three games of the season due to a meniscus injury.
The first news of Robinson facing a suspension came around the time of the NFL Draft – where the Jaguars took an offensive tackle, Oklahoma’s Anton Harrison, in the first round. They also too Appalachian State o-lineman Cooper Hodges in the seventh round.
