    I won't be surprised if it is Adderall

    At least the pre-draft tantrum makes sense now.

    I'm not angry with PP like some seem to be. I'm disappointed, of course, both in the willingness to cheat and the tantrum when he got caught.

    Now, it is time to see how he responds. I agree with whoever said, it is all on him. The recovery is all on him, too. Let's see if he can come back from this, be as dominant without the PEDs, and is willing to focus on work.

    Wow. PP21. Low character moves. I hope he turns things around, but I bet he's played his last in a Cards jersey.

    Brady didn't get suspended for PEDs though

    I know the Brady situation was completely different. I was just providing an example where the team restructured a player’s contract before an impending suspension.

    Maybe that’s what Peterson’s camp for hoping for.

    He's saying it was related to a drug he used for his type II diabetes. That's the spin.:confused:

    Patrick Peterson is the best cover corner in the game right now, one of the two most valuable players on the team, and will be enshrined in Canton when his career is over. He is also in his twenties with no evidence of decline. In fact, the six games he's going to miss will be the first six games he's ever missed in the NFL.

    Barring some godfather offer from another team, trading Peterson would be a fool's errand and a completely emotional, knee-jerk response. You don't get better trading away guys like Peterson. You simply don't.

    Sure, rip the C off of his chest, but trading him is just dumb. See how Oakland is coping with getting rid of Khalil Mack. Their defense was atrocious and will be bottom-tier again.

    It's actually a much smarter move to extend Patrick Peterson at this point because this situation will devalue him some.

    Summary of his side story third party via Bickley:

    Patrick was feeling sluggish after the season due to his Type 2 Diabetes

    He sought out things to raise his energy level.

    He tested positive for what he took.

    He went to the team and asked for help since he didn't knowingly violate the banned substances

    Team said no they can't do that. He is responsible for what he puts in his body

    He asked that this not come out until after his charity event

    It's released right before the event

    I will say this though: how many of us on this board would be willing to take Adderall or other PEDS if we knew it would allow us to play a sport that paid seven to $10 million a year? I’m not excusing it, but that’d be pretty tempting for me to do and I consider myself a pretty ethical person.

    If Patrick Peterson took a banned substance without his knowledge to combat something, this is what the NFL Players Association clearly states on its website: “The final responsibility rests with you to ensure that you do not take a banned substance."

    Peterson is allowed to participate in offseason and preseason practices and games. He can return to the team on Oct. 14, following the Week 6 game against the Falcons.
