Jaguars say they 'were aware' in statement on Aaron Colvin suspension

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Aaron Colvin was suspended for the first four games of the 2016 NFL season on Friday afternoon and the team was quick to release a statement on the news.

We have been aware for some time of the impending suspension on Aaron Colvin. We are disappointed in this situation, but we know this is not indicative of Aaron's character or the type of person that he is," Jaguars general manager David Caldwell stated in a team released statement. "We will be supportive of him and we stand by him as he takes the proper steps to overcome what transpired. Nobody is more disappointed than Aaron himself."

Colvin can participate in the team's offseason activities and the NFL preseason, but once the season starts his suspension will begin. It will be a hit for the Jaguars secondary, as the team was looking to kick him back inside with the signing of Prince Amukamara in free agency.

Cornerback was already a slight need for the Jaguars, at least depth wise, but this is going to make it that much more of a need as we're just three weeks away from the NFL Draft.
