Don't believe everything you read.

http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/...n-drug-rumors/

Responding to the NFLDraftBible.com report that claims several prospects tested positive for marijuana or steroids at the Scouting Combine, the NFL has issued a statement emphasizing that none of the 32 teams or the league office have been informed of the drug test results yet.

Here is the full statement from the league office:

“Neither the 32 clubs nor the league office know the results of drug or steroid tests taken at the 2009 Combine. The independent medical advisors who administer the tests have notified in writing those players and only those players who tested positive at the Combine.

“Unfortunately, rumors about draft eligible players, including rumors about test results, begin to circulate every year at this time. Many of these rumors are circulated for self-serving reasons and they are terribly unfair to the players and their families.”


NFLDraftBible.com, a web site unaffiliated with the league, reported that USC linebackers Clay Matthews and Brian Cushing tested positive for steroids and that Boston College defensive tackle B.J. Raji, Illinois cornerback Vontae Davis, University of Florida wide receiver Percy Harvin and UTEP kicker Jose Martinez tested positive for marijuana.

SI.com previously reported that Raji tested positive for marijuana.

USC coach Pete Carroll denied the report regarding the former Trojan linebackers, as did the agents for Davis and Matthews in separate statements released to us today.

That's just Belichick trying to get one of these guys to drop to 23.

Every year, this bs happens.
