We've all read the report that Brian Cushing will be suspended the first four games of the year after testing positive for steroid use sometime in 2009. And we all immediatley thought: Oh no. What about Clay Matthews?
Greg Bedard has a pitch perfect take over on the Journal Sentinel's Packers blog:
As most of you know, NFLDraftBible.com reported before the 2009 draft that Matthews and Cushing both tested positive for steroids at the combine. Both ended up not being on the final list sent to teams and the report was retracted.
Fast forward a year later and now Cushing, after years of rumored steroid use (the whispers go back to his New Jersey high school days), has indeed failed a test for PEDs. While he could have tested positive for anything, the fact that he or his reps have not come out yet to say anything or to reveal what triggered the positive test does not look good.
Got a lot of questions on Twitter about what this means for Matthews, who hasn't commented on Cushing via his Twitter account.
Nothing. As long as he doesn't test positive for anything.
