More controversy for Seahawks' Richard Sherman
Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman claims he never said that "about half the league" takes the prescription drug Adderall, as he was quoted as saying in a Vancouver Sun story earlier this week.
The NFL prohibits players from using Adderall in the absence of what it calls a therapeutic use exemption. Sherman was slapped with a four-game suspension last season for allegedly taking Adderall, but the ban was overturned when it was determined that his urine sample was mishandled.
The Vancouver Sun said Thursday that it stands by the story. The author of the story, Mike Beamish, provided 710 ESPN Seattle with a written transcript of his conversation with Sherman.
According to the transcript, the two talked about Sherman's overturned suspension before Beamish said, "There are players who actually have to take Adderall, because people have ADD and ADHD," to which Sherman responded, "There's about half the league that takes it [Adderall], and the league has to allow it."
Sherman said Thursday that he's never taken Adderall.
Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby share their thoughts on the story in the video below.
