starcaps_steroids_nflGrady Jackson, Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle, has followed the example of New Orleans Saints Jamar Nesbit.

Jackson is also suing Nikki Haskell’s StarCaps for getting him banned for four games, the typical penalty for first time offenders of the NFL’s policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.

Jackson and Nesbit are just two of the several NFL players who got suspended for doping for testing positive for bumetanide. It was alleged that StarCaps diet pills were tainted with the loop diuretic.

Bumetanide is among the NFL’s prohibited compounds since it is sometimes used as a masking agent for performance-enhancing drugs including anabolic steroids.

From the is this statement: “We’ve received notice of a problem with an NFL player.We have referred the matter to our counsel and are taking all necessary steps to ensure that our customers receive product that is safe and effective. We have temporarily suspended shipping of StarCaps pending the results of our investigation.”

The other players who got involved in the bumetanide controversy were defensive tackles Pat Williams and Kevin Williams of the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints trio Deuce McAllister, Will Smith and Charles Grant.

There was discussion that Grady Jackson was going to buy steroids and diuretics, but is now blaming starcaps on his problems.  Grady Jackson has been known to buy steroids in the past in the fairly open, which he shouldn’t do.
