I think he means he's going to take the punishment and not appeal, trying to get it reduced/delayed like most players do. Still, poor choice of words.

No. Your first offense puts you in the NFL's substance abuse program, but you aren't fined, suspended and the info isn't released.

So either the DUI put him in the program (my guess) or he's failed two drug tests in the last year. Either way, this was a second offense.

Next offense, he's suspended for a year.

Oh! By the way, remember when he promised to stop drinking? Yeah, he was drinking at a barbecue this past weekend.

He needs help. Because he's going to ruin his career, and possibly his life.
