According to a press release from the NFLPA, Wichard also was suspended for communicating with UNC defensive tackle Marvin Austin, who was not eligible at the time for the NFL draft.

Wichard was connected to John Blake, the former associate head coach at UNC who resigned Sept. 5. Wichard provided money to Blake, considered as illegally providing gifts to coaches.

Wichard has accepted the suspension and waived his right to appeal.
