For most, the four-game suspension handed down to cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner come as a surprise. In league circles, both players are known as one of the best cornerback duos the league has to offer.
Yet, everyone knows that any drug linked to their name as a performance enhancer substantially tarnishes a player's image. One may think Adderall may not be considered a drug that would enhance ones performance, yet it does.
Adderall is a common drug that is used to treat ADHD in people of all age ranges. And surprisingly, the number of people we have seen get suspended from the NFL because of it this year is incredible. The rampant spike in Adderall use around the league screams bigger problem.
For example, look at the Seahawks secondary. Three players have been popped for Adderall use—Sherman, Browner and Winston Guy. Could all three players be taking the same supplement that has traces of Adderall in it?
Sherman and Brown both proclaim their innocence and are appealing the ruling. I think it's time the NFL does more and starts to dig a little bit deeper to see just what is causing these tests to register as positives. Both players have said they have never even taken the drug, so if that's the case, how did they test positive for it?
