Another suspension in the league is coming according to sources, and this time it comes from Tennessee, where reports say that linebacker Ryan Folwer is going to miss time due to violating the league’s policy for performance-enhancing drugs. ESPN broke the story, and Fowler’s lawyer, Peter Ginsberg told the network that the allegations are untrue.
“Ryan has never tested positive for any banned substance,” Ginsberg told ESPN. “There apparently are unsubstantiated accusations that have been made by an admitted felon without any corroboration, and the commissioner apparently has seen fit to use those accusations to threaten my client’s career.
“It’s a violation of Ryan’s due process rights and seemingly a violation of the NFL’s policy itself to use these kind of unsubstantiated accusations itself. We’ve asked the NFL to provide to us any corroboration or support for these allegations and, to date, the NFL has provided absolutely no evidence to support any threatened discipline.”
ESPN said it had gotten word from sources that Fowler got a letter stating it has info that the LB “purchased, used or supplied” performance-enhancing drugs. Fowler played in 14 games for Tennessee last season, making 53 tackles. He had played his first three seasons with the Cowboys.
