Drug Test List Has Less Than Ten Positives

Some league insiders were bracing for 25 or more names on the list of players who tested positive for marijuana and other prohibited substances at the Scouting Combine.

In the end, the number is in the single digits.

Per a league source, fewer than 10 players tested positive.

We’re working on getting the names that are on the list and, perhaps more importantly, some of the key names rumored to have tested positive.



Raji Didn’t Test Positive

Well, SI.com perhaps will now officially retract its report regarding Boston College defensive tackle B.J. Raji.

Per a league source, Raji’s name did not appear on the list of players who tested positive for marijuana at the Scouting Combine.

Earlier this month, Tony Pauline of SI.com reported that Raji tested positive. After Raji and his agents denied it, SI.com pulled the story.

But SI.com didn’t retract the report. Eventually, SI.com issued the following statement: “We have investigated the claims of Mr. Raji’s agent and although we have several credible sources for the report we have decided to take it down while we continue reporting the story.”

Appearing on radio recently with Mike Dempsey of 1010XL in Jacksonville, Pauline declared: “I stand by what my sources told me.”



Davis, Cushing, Matthews Not On Positive List, Either

And so the truth continues to come out regarding the players who supposedly tested positive at the Scouting Combine.

Per a league source, none of the players who reportedly tested positive and then denied testing positive actually tested positive.

This means that Illinois cornerback Vontae Davis did not test positive for marijuana, and that USC linebackers Clay Matthews and Brian Cushing did not test positive for steroids.

And it could mean that Davis and Cushing and Matthews soon could be the new co-owners of NFLDraftBible.com, the site that reported that each of them tested positive.

Sux that these writers have so much power. Glad this news came out before the draft. As I've stated before, I'm not naive enough to think that some of these guys don't use. But if they don't really fail a test, they should be considered clean until proven un-clean :lol:

This one should end up in court, particularly, if any of these players ends up being drafted lower than expected. If you're going to write it you better be prepared to defend it and if you can't, you should be prepared to defend yourself in a courtroom. The freedom of speech doesn't allow you to make up stories or tell falsehoods with impunity. You can say it, but, others are free to react to it.

If I were either of these players the courts would have already met my attorney.
