Pro Football Talk reports that Joe Haden‘s upcoming suspension for Adderall comes after he took the medication for a “pick me up” in Las Vegas.
A league source tells PFT that the locker-room scuttlebutt in Cleveland is that cornerback Joe Haden tested positive for Adderall after taking the ADD medication as a “pick-me-up” during an offseason visit to Las Vegas.
This implies that Haden didn’t have a prescription for Adderall. It also implies that luck was anything but a lady for Haden, if it’s something he only took once.
The policy regarding anabolic steroids and related substances entails year-round random testing for all players, and Haden necessarily drew the short straw while the substance was still in his system.
