Jets QB Erik Ainge, currently on the reserved/non-football illness list, recently disclosed that he was a "really bad drug addict," escalating from marijuana to prescription meds, alcohol, cocaine and even heroin.
"I would've made Charlie Sheen look like Miss Daisy," said Ainge. His drug abuse began with a bong hit at age 12. Ainge, who has also been diagnosed as bipolar, disappeared for a month in the spring of 2009 to attend a detox center. He ended up sitting out the 2010 season because he went on a "two-week bender" before training camp. Realizing he had hit rock bottom, Ainge checked himself into a rehab clinic last July and has been clean since. Ainge concedes that his football future remains "uncertain." We wouldn't bank on seeing him in a Jets uniform ever again.
