Which would be very bad for them.

'Roids should be much worse than weed on draft status.

None of this has been confirmed by any reliable news source.
Florio has an actually interesting take on the so called "leaks" that are not supposed to occur at the combie. Go check him out if you are interested.

What is really interesting is that right after Cushing was tested at the combine, he made a public statement saying that he tested negative at the combine, and even went so far as to as to say he was glad that he had proven all the rumors wrong and wanted to put it to rest. I think he was tested that very day!
Also, i do however, have a reliable source at SC, that as of this morning says that both Cushing and Matthews agents and lawyers were actively seeking legal action against this site. So i guess we will see.
Only player i have seen on any reliable news source is the Raji story. Who knows, now maybe thats bogus.
The results of the combine tests are to be made public i think? in a month.

not surprised on former Illini Vernon Davis.... Just listen to interviews of his- wow-kinda feel sorry for him as he has amazing ability but just doesn't have the marbles up top. I know it was always tough finding a college course schedule that he could "manage."

I've read other sites and people are stating that their have been rumors for years about Cushings steroid use. Perhaps this explains his injuries, who knows. Just because there is smoke, doesn't mean there is fire. Wait and see on this one. Now, I am curious to know how Maybin bulked up so quickly.

And just like i said earlier would happen, it has. Word is now that Cushings agent (lawyers) are just waiting for this to handled by this clown, and if it isnt they will take it to the next level.

Report of Matthews Drug Test Refuted (http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/04/03/report-of-matthews-drug-test-refuted/)

Posted by Aaron Wilson on April 3, 2009, 2:19 p.m. EDT
In response to NFL Draft Bible’s report (http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/04/03/reports-surface-of-more-positive-drug-tests/) that USC linebacker Clay Matthews tested positive for steroids at the <NOBR id=itxt_nobr_1_0 style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal; FONT-SIZE: 100%">NFLhttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/mag-glass_10x10.gif</NOBR> (http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/04/03/report-of-matthews-drug-test-refuted/#) Scouting Combine, the agent that represents Matthews has issued a denial.
In an e-mail sent to Rick Serritella at NFL Draft Bible from Athletes First vice president and general counsel Mark Humenik stated that neither Matthews or his agents have been informed of any failed drug test. Plus, he added that a lawyer for the league office told him that the NFL hasn’t received notification that any players have tested positive for steroids at the combine.
NFL Draft Bible also reported that <NOBR id=itxt_nobr_3_0 style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal; FONT-SIZE: 100%">USChttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/mag-glass_10x10.gif</NOBR> (http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/04/03/report-of-matthews-drug-test-refuted/#) linebacker Brian Cushing has tested positive for steroids.
Here’s an unabridged copy of the note:
“Our office represents Clay Matthews. Your website is reporting, via unnamed sources including one NFL team, that Clay tested positive for steroids at the NFL Combine. As I’m sure you know, the NFL Policy on Anabolic Steroids and Related Substances clearly states that “any Club or Club employee that publicly divulges, directly or indirectly, information concerning positive tests or other violations of this Policy (including numerical summaries or specific names of persons) or otherwise breaches the confidentiality provisions of this Policy is subject to a fine of up to $500,000 by the Commissioner.
“Further, neither Clay nor our office has received notification of any positive test, whether for steroids or any banned substance. I also have been informed by an attorney at the NFL League Office that they have not received notification from the Independent Administrator of any Draft-eligible players testing positive for steroids during the pre-employment drug testing conducted at this year’s Combine, and likewise, that they have not informed the member NFL clubs of any drug testing results. Govern yourself accordingly.
Sincerely, Mark Humenik Vice President & General Counsel Athletes First“
