Report: Seahawks could face fines for players testing positive for PEDs
The Seattle Seahawks could face fines from the National Football League for multiple players being suspended in a season for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drugs policy after Seahawks defensive end Bruce Irvin was suspended last week, reports NFL.com.
Irvin will miss the first four games of the upcoming season after reportedly testing positive for Adderall, which is a drug more commonly used for the treatment of attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder.
The Seahawks have had more PED suspensions than any other team in the NFL since head coach Pete Carroll took over the team in 2010.
The other Seahawks suspended were cornerback Brandon Browner, safety Winston Guy, tackle Allen Barbre and guard John Moffitt. All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman had his suspension last season reversed on appeal.
Carroll said he’ll re-evaluate his PED policy.
“It’s not right yet,” Carroll said. “We have to figure it out through education, or finding other ways,” according to KJR-FM, via NFL.com.
