Florida State Dismisses Wide Receiver Jarmon Fortson; Failed Drug Tests Involved?

Florida State will begin the Jimbo Fisher era without a promising piece from the Bobby Bowden era. Jarmon Fortson has been dismissed for what Florida State termed "violating team policy." ESPN's Mark Schlabach goes a bit further, reporting that sources say Fortson failed "multiple drug tests."

Atlanta radio host Chuck Oliver turns that multiple into a number.

Update re:Fortson - my understanding, extremely close source, 5 failed drug tests. Jimbo and FSU staff bent over backwards for him. No more.less than a minute ago via web


Fortson caught 45 passes for 610 yards last season, and would have started for the Seminoles this fall.
