NFL suspends former Cowboy FergusonFree agent Jason Ferguson has been suspended by NFL for eight games after he was found violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

He was also suspended for violating drug policy of NFL in 1999 to sit out four games after an anabolic steroid showed up during a urine test.

Ferguson during his 1999 suspension said, “I read bottles and I know steroids. I didn’t take no damn steroids.”

NFL-steroidsIt is of no wonder why many believe the National Football League is the premier sports organization in the United States which has the most number of players who take anabolic steroids.

Another NFL player has bitten the dust for using these banned compounds. Cincinnati Bengals’ linebacker Darryl Blackstock was suspended for violating the league’s policy regarding anabolic steroids and related substances.

“I’ve apologized to my coaches and teammates for an unfortunate mistake,” Blackstock said. “I did not intentionally violate the policy, but I know it’s my responsibility to use only approved nutritional supplements, and I didn’t realize I was taking an over-the-counter product that included a banned substance. I also want to apologize to our fans, and I’ll do everything I can to be ready to come back strong next month.”

Apologies accepted, disciplinary action imposed. Blackstock has been suspended for four games

Early this month, Dallas Cowboy’s practice squad receiver Mike Jefferson was suspended for the same violation. New Orleans Saints’ Jamar Nesbit, meanwhile, was also suspended late September for same infringement. Both Jefferson and Nesbit received four-game suspension without pay.

The NFL’s statistics on steroid use is also the reason why many don’t believe Tony Mandarich when he denied he had used steroids during his lackluster career in the NFL. Mandarich stated he had only used steroids during his Michigan State days. C’mon, not using steroids while playing in the NFL? That’s like hearing Michael Jackson saying he did not undergo rhinoplasty while visiting his cosmetic surgeon!

NFL has suspended Mike Jefferson, Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad receiver, for four games for violating the league’s policy on anabolic steroids and related substances. The 25-year-old will serve the suspension without pay.

In 2007, Jefferson was signed by the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent. On August, 2008, he was cut by the Cowboys when the team reduced its roster to 53 players. However, he was signed back to the team’s practice squad the next day.

  NFL player linked to steroid ring dropped by New Orleans Saints

nfl-steroidsThings are not looking good for Matt Lehr. Lehr was recently dropped from the roster of the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League.

From the New Orleans Saints site:

New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced Sunday that the club has signed linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar to the active roster and terminated the contract of center Matt Lehr.

Dunbar, a rookie linebacker from the Boston College, signed with the Saints as a rookie free agent in April. The 6-foot, 226-pound native of Syracuse, N.Y. played in all four of the team’s preseason games this summer, making 16 tackles on defense and three more on special teams before being waived in the final round of cuts. He was re-signed to the practice squad September 1 and practiced with the team this week.

Lehr signed with team as a free agent this offseason after playing in 2007 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 6-2, 290-pound veteran offensive lineman saw action in all four preseason games as a reserve center.

We have devoted some articles on Lehr due to his ties with confessed steroid dealer David Jacobs of Plano, Texas. Jacobs had been very vocal of Lehr’s involvement with his steroid distribution network. The scandal had gained more notoriety when Jacobs killed himself and his on-again, off-again 30-year-old girlfriend Amanda Jo Earheart- Savell in June this year, soon after Jacobs got three years probation for distributing steroids. It was reported that Lehr had romantic relationship with Earheart-Savell, a figure competitor.

Before he committed the murder-suicide, the former bodybuilder met with NFL officials on two occasions and disclosed to them the names of NFL players whom he sold steroids to, particularly past and current players of the Dallas Cowboys.

After the murder-suicide, the league released a statement, offering condolences to the families of Jacobs and Earheart-Savell. Also, it said that officials were reviewing the information provided to them by Jacobs. The statement further read that: “It is premature to comment on any specific player at this time. Anyone found to have violated our policies will be subject to discipline, including suspension. We will continue to be responsive to any needs of law enforcement on this matter.”

Lehr was a fifth-round pick by the Cowboys in 2001. He started 22 games over parts of four years before his release late in the 2004 season.
Ryan Fowler is another former Cowboys player who was linked with Jacobs’ steroid distribution ring. The league, however, had not followed through a letter sent to Fowler June this year. The letter stated that he was facing an investigation and possible suspension. Fowler, who is currently with Tennessee Titans, considered the investigation closed.

  Love triangle – likely angle to murder-suicide of steroid dealer, female bodybuilder

david-jacobs-steroidsIt would seem that jealousy played a role in the murder-suicide case of steroid dealer David Jacobs. Jacobs killed Amanda Jo Earhart-Savell last month with seven gunshots from a .40-caliber semiautomatic Glock 22 that Jacobs also turned on himself. The two were reportedly dating each other on and off since last year.

In May, Jacobs got probation in exchange for his cooperation in the federal investigation of his steroid distribution network. Prior to his death, however, Jacobs has provided only a single name for the investigators – Matt Lehr. Lehr is a former Dallas Cowboy lineman and currently plays with the New Orleans Saints.

Why only Lehr, many asked.

Jacobs said he felt Lehr and his lawyer were untruthful about the NFL player’s role in Jacobs’ steroid distribution network. Plus the fact that Jacobs was jealous of Lehr because of the Lehr’s interest with Earhart-Savell.

Earhart-Savell’s family and friends said Jacobs might have found evidence of a budding romance between his girlfriend and Lehr. Jacobs himself had revealed to The Dallas Morning News that he had suspected the two were interested in each other for months.

“She was in love with me, and I loved her,” said Lehr in a recent interview, the first time he publicly acknowledged his relationship with the deceased figure competitor. Lehr, however, still refused to provide any comments on Jacobs’ steroid allegations.
Lehr was suspended in 2006 for using steroids.
