The Seattle Seahawks player, Richard Sherman recently said that "half" the NFL takes Adderall, but after he got a bunch of backlash for his statement, he's now trying to claim that he did NOT say that!!
Here's what Sherman supposedly said:
"About half the league takes it [Adderall], and the league has to allow it. 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."
"First off, I didn't say that. It's just another case of these writers trying to gain a little notoriety in an interview. What I said was there's a bunch of guys on prescription for Adderall. I've never seen people get prescribed a performance enhancing drug, you know what I mean? …. They go so crazy when guys test positive for it, but a bunch of guys have prescriptions for it, so it's kind of misleading."
Considering that the football player was suspended last year for taking Adderall, we can see why he's so adamant about clearing his name.
After all, we doubt he wants to get busted with drugs in his system again.
