    Report: Unrecognizable substance triggered Edelman's positive PED test

    Even the chummy Mike Golic thinks something is up.

    ESPN’s Mike Golic Blasts NFL For Julian Edelman’s Four-Game Suspension

    This is very strange that the NFL, or really anyone for that matter, can yet prove what the substance was. One has to worry if this is another sting on their part.

    Chris Simms says NFL has been suspicious of Julian Edelman for a while

    How can you suspend a guy before knowing what he’s actually suspended for?

    This is obvious, and nothing new for him.

    But man, are they really going to start going after other Patriots players now?

    It’s taking them quite some time to figure it out. Hopefully they do so.

    I am usually among the first to make fun of self appointed forum hall monitors but this is a bit different. Why not post that in the running discussion that already includes all 3 of those links? The suspension/appeal isn't going away anytime soon, wouldn't a running dialogue be better than scattered threads? Not trying to be a richard just trying to understand the logic.

    Well... they should figure out what it is before suspending him. Name the illegal substance. Just common sense. Like putting someone in jail because he’s walking around with a mask on.

    No one has posted anything in it recently, unless I missed it.

    The last post there was yesterday afternoon. That doesn't qualify as recent yet the Butler thread was brought back from the dead more times than Michael Myers. These posts including the links are literally from yesterday:

    Fair enough. I probably wasn’t noticing it yesterday as I haven’t been active in that thread. I haven’t really been following the follow up to this whole Edelman saga until now.

    I’ll let the mods decide if they want to merge this or not

    Simms is so full of crap. Talking about “guys say things” and implying he knows what the league is thinking.
    The article should say Simms drinking buddies not surprised Edelman caught for PEDs.

    The same ones who couldn’t convince people that the laws of science on this planet are in effect at Gillette stadium too?

    Eh I’m not intending to credit Simms too much, because he’s been known for exaggerating junk like this.

    It was just one of the most recent news topics regarding the situation.

    This isn’t really a unique practice in sports. Often the drugs are ahead of the tests.

    No but what is odd is how they slapped him with a 4 game suspension without having identified the substance which is in violation of the PED policy.

    Isn’t it pretty much an auto 4?
