NFL Calls Richard Sherman’s Adderall Comments Irresponsible, Ill-Informed & Inaccurate

Richard Sherman

Sherman who has become the Rowdy Roddy Piper of the NFL, says half the players in the league are popping Adderall and the NFL shouldn’t ban the drug.

That didn’t sit too well with the NFL, here is what they had to say.

“The comments are ill-informed and inaccurate. Adderall is easily detected under current testing and will result in a suspension absent an approved therapeutic use exemption.”

“If his statement were true, we would be seeing many more positive tests and suspensions.”

“More importantly, his comments are irresponsible, as they ignore the serious medical risks and documented public health crisis associated with the improper use of Adderall and similar drugs.”

I know Adderall was a very popular drug with athletes last summer, before players started to get suspended.  Half the league is probably on some sort of drugs, but not just Adderall.  At this point, you have to take all of Sherman’s comments with a grain of salt. He is just trying to stir the pot and get his name in the paper.
