The Richard Sherman suspension is taking turns left and right. First the Seahawks’ star cornerback denied taking Adderall, despite a report saying that his failed test stemmed from taking the prescription drug. Then, a report came out from Mike Garafolo of the USA Today that said Sherman accidentally drank from a bottle that his teammate had poured crushed Adderall into. Now, Sherman is denying the truth of the USA Today report, according to Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR. Crabtree tweeted that Sherman texted that the report is “totally false” and said, ”It was be resolved in time and I have never taken anything.” Okay then. So the report has gone from Adderall to no Adderall to crushed Adderall in a drink, back to no Adderall. The Adderall defense comes from a long line of recent similar excuses from NFL players. On Monday alone, Jermaine Cunningham and Eric Wright were both suspended taking Adderall not prescribed by a doctor. Since the NFL does not release what triggered a failed test, “Adderall” could be used as a cover up for PEDs that would tarnish a players’ reputation more like steroids or HGH.
