Washington Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander was asked if Seahawks comeback Richard Sherman should be playing this week, since he failed a drug test. Defensive tackle Kedric Golston came over and spoke his mind.
“He’s a cheater,” Golston said, then walked away.
“It is what it is,” Alexander told USA TODAY Sports. “I don’t know what his total case and background of it is, or about the paperwork he did. He was doing Adderall, Ritalin, the same thing that (Redskins cornerback) Cedric (Griffin) was doing, I believe. I know there’s a (testing) procedure you have to do and even then, they can still hit you for it. It is what it is.”
There’s no doubt Sherman is a heck of a player. The truth of the matter is that a lot of athletes “cheat.” It doesn’t making cheating right, but Golston’s comment was uncalled for.
