Seattle Seahawks stud cornerback Richard Sherman has had a noisy off-season, and it just got a little louder for him and the rest of the league.

Sherman if you recall successfully appealed a four-game suspension last season after testing positive for the ADHD medication Adderall.

Sherman during a NFL Play 60 program spoke to the Vancouver Sun, and says the prescription drug is so commonly used among NFL players that the NFL ought to just accept it and take Adderall off the banned list.

“About half the league takes it (Adderall) and the league has to allow it,” Sherman said Tuesday. “The league made a mistake in my case. Obviously, I didn’t do anything, but you have to go through a process to prove you didn’t do anything. There are still naysayers out there who don’t believe me. But I accept it. If everybody loves you, it probably means you’re not much of a player.”

We would half to seriously consider and test to see if Adderall, which is a natural stimulant, really causes a competitive advantage.

I do agree with Sherman on the fact that I’m sure there are a bevy of players in the NFL who probably do suffer from ADHD, ADD, or some type of hyperactivity.

In that case Adderall is a medication shouldn’t be banned or looked down upon.

    Adderall actually isn’t banned, per se. There are just steps you have to follow before you are allowed to test positive for it–those steps go way beyond just a doctor’s note.
