    Wtf Brandon. :mad:

    He's gone, undrafted rookie, BB will have none of that. Too bad, because he'd be a great #2 back and showed potential to be a main back.

    Oh thought I've seen them classify weed as that before, maybe the NFL doesn't. Hopefully he wasn't on HGH or something.

    Well that blows, how do you get caught for that again? I thought people said they couldn't test for that kind of stuff(HGH?) but how do people get busted for it then?

    A PED can be any type of steroid or drug classed as a masking agent (like diet pills etc).

    I doubt he'll be cut. He'll serve the punishment and come back. Hopefully, lesson learned. (If not, THEN he'll be gone.)

    Considering they just traded for a guy who punched a cab driver I don't think Brandon is getting cut for this.

    It's banned but they can't yet test for it. That is, a test does exist, but the CBA requires the union to agree to the method of testing, and the union hasn't done so. Rodney was busted for HGH a while back based on his name appearing on a list of customers of a doctor who was prescribing it.

    I don't think this hurts him too much. Remember that Spikes had the exact same suspension his rookie season.

    No.

    Also the nature of the substance he's been suspended for hasn't been revealed yet, so can we hold off on the speculations? It most likely is a rookie error a.k.a. Spikes.

    Take a wait and see on this one. If its something stupid like aderal I'm gonna be upset because players have no excuse to be naive anymore regarding prescribed drugs. If its test or a masking agent then he is an idiot and hope the team sits him the rest of the season. Again though, wait and see.

    Not so fast my friend. Aqib Talib isn't on our roster right now as far as I know. Not sure if that's a special circumstance with him being traded or not though.

    Probably that same ADD drug Talib and Spikes got suspended for. Apparently that drug is really running rampant in football. Apparently a lot of guys in the NFL have ADD ;)

    I think it really depends on what the PED is...Spikes suspension was the same as Talib's suspension...ADHD medication which is a bit different than steroids or the drugs that masks the steroids.
