    Bruce Irvin suspended for PED use

    Bruce Irvin suspended for violating PED policy

    Posted by Darin Gantt on May 17, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT

    The Seahawks bought pass-rushers in bulk this offseason, and it’s a good thing they did.
    The league announced that Seahawks defensive end Bruce Irvin has been suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances.
    He can still take part in offseason workouts, but won’t be eligible to play until after their Sept. 29 game against the Texans.
    Irvin had 8.0 sacks as a rookie, but was being counted on for more this year.
    “I want to apologize to my teammates, coaches and Seahawks fans for making a mistake when I took a substance that is prohibited in the NFL without a medical exemption,” Irvin said in a statement released by the team. “I am extremely disappointed in the poor judgment I showed and take full responsibility for my actions. I will not appeal the discipline and instead will focus my energy on preparing for the season so I can begin earning your trust and respect again. I look forward to contributing to the team the moment I return.”
    Mentioning the lack of a medical exemption makes it sound like this one’s going to be blamed on Adderall.
    His absence for the first month justifies their offseason additions of Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett.

    As a Mountaineer, I say... shame on you, Bruce!

    On the flip side, as the article points out, they added Avril and Bennett so they won't be completely hurting at the position.

    Apparently this was not a surprise to the Seahawks, as they have reportedly known since before free agency started. If that's true, my guess is he popped around the same time Browner and Sherman did, the difference being his situation wasn't leaked. Perhaps the source of the leak wasn't aware of Irvin's sample? I dunno.

    Thought you might get a kick out of this though.

    As always, you are one of the only opposing team fans that are a welcome sight on this board. Glad to have you visit and make us laugh, even if it comes at a player on your own teams expense...

    Apparently, the Seahawks are a bunch of PEDphiles.




    No, that didn't say what you think it said.

    Read it again.
