new-orleans-saints-steroidsNew Orleans Saints guard Jamar Nesbit thinks he’s been wronged and wants vindication.

Nesbit filed a lawsuit against StarCaps, the company behind the over-the-counter dietary supplement allegedly spiked with the diuretic bumetanide.

The lawsuit seeks $235,000 for to compensate for his lost wages resulting from his four-game suspension. Nesbit was penalized by the NFL for violation of the league’s policy on anabolic steroid and related substances in late September this year.

StarCaps has recently suspended its sale of its controversial product.

Several other NFL players have tested positive for bumetanide and they all denied wrongdoing. They blamed the same StarCaps diet system for testing positive for the prohibited compound.

Among those implicated in the controversial doping case were Nesbit’s fellow Saints: running back Deuce McAllister and defensive ends Will Smith and Charles Grant. Minnesota Vikings defensive tackles Pat Williams and Kevin Williams could also face doping suspensions due to the same infringement.
