Vontae Davis Drug Rumors Denied

The agent for University of Illinois cornerback Vontae Davis has issued a denial of an report that claimed Davis tested positive for marijuana at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Here’s the entire statement released to us minutes ago from Davis’ agent, Todd France:
“Last night it was reported on an Internet site that my client, Vontae Davis, tested positive for marijuana at the combine.  The report cited unnamed sources including an NFL team.  Neither Vontae nor our office has received any notification of any positive test whether for marijuana or any other banned substance.  In addition, we have been informed by several of our NFL contacts that they have not been notified of any drug testing results from the combine.”
The brother of San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, Vontae Davis is a projected first-round draft pick.
At the combine, Davis ran a 4.40 in the 40-yard dash, bench pressed 225 pounds 25 times and turned in a 10-5 broad jump. He registered a 37.5-inch vertical leap at his campus Pro Day workout.

    Notice how he didn’t come out and say “I don’t smoke pot”
    That statement didn’t exactly help his cause

    Its funny how all of these players agents are denying that they have yet to be informed about said player testing positive for whatever, but they are not saying that so-so player did not fail the test. So, what, they are just buying time until the reports are verified.

    In other news, Davis was seen disposing of a mass amount of Cheetos and Cheech and Chong DVD’s…

    He sure didn’t deny that Davis did drugs though! Very interesting.

    The site in question just posted news that Terry Bradshaw has died.

    Sounds like smoking weed works well for this guy… he’s fast strong and apparently (not) stoned.

    Why do people issuing these denials never see that what is NOT addressed speaks as loudly as what is addressed –
    Or maybe, in this case, he simply COULDN’T say, my client does not take drugs, never has, could not, therefore, be on anybody’s “positive” list, no way, nohow, not him.

    “The brother of San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, Vontae Davis is a projected first-round draft pick.”
    Yeah….that’s not helping his case to be a first-round pick at all….
