NFL Responds to Richard Sherman's Adderall Comment

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has been known for shooting his mouth off. He has a run in with Tom Brady, a Twitter feud with Darrelle Revis, and a memorable 'debate' with Skip Bayless that looked more like the two class bullies that were afraid to fight sniping at each other.

Recently he opened his mouth again, this time calling out his fellow professionals and thumbing his nose at the league's drug policy in the process:
“About half the league takes it (Adderall) and the league has to allow it..."
Sigh. Come one Richard. You went to Stanford man so we know you have a brain up in that head. Think about what you say before you say it man!

If the league could fine someone for saying something stupid Sherman would be out a healthy chunk of cash. Since they can't (as far as I know; don't count out Roger Goodell) the league will have to be satisfied with just pointing out what the world already knows.

Sherman doesn't know what he is talking about and needs to be quiet.

In a statement to TMZ (really? they gave it to them?) the league said:
“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.”
The rep continues, “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.”
Sherman will likely have something to say in response. Hopefully his agent will advise him to say nothing, but come on--we all know he will not be able to stop himself.
