Matthews and Cushing are Clean

Apologies for the lack of posting over the past few days, I was in Las Vegas with Orson, PB, Holly, SMQ and Doug Gillett over the weekend and I am now in L.A. on business. I hope to get back into the swing of things later this week. In the mean time...

Not that this news is at all surprising but it was confirmed today that Clay Matthews and Brian Cushing DID NOT test positive for steroids.

From Pro Football Talk (which I will not link to because their irresponsible postings)

And so the truth continues to come out regarding the players who supposedly tested positive at the Scouting Combine.

Per a league source, none of the players who reportedly tested positive and then denied testing positive actually tested positive.

This means that Illinois cornerback Vontae Davis did not test positive for marijuana, and that USC linebackers Clay Matthews and Brian Cushing did not test positive for steroids.

This matters because it never should have posted in the first place.The potential damage done to both Matthew's and Cushing's draft stock could be irreversible. I posted on a number of SBN sites, Pro and College, defending both players as being maliciously singled out. I don't know who did test positive and frankly I don't care that's between the league and the players.

I am wondering if any of those sites will retract their erroneous posts, especially one in particular...

I'm not counting on it.
