Washington’s Trent Murphy suspended four games for PEDs

AP

As it turns out, Dean Blandino was only the beginning of the NFL’s Friday news dump this week.

Washington announced that outside linebacker Trent Murphy was suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Murphy’s potential suspension was first reported in March, and this announcement means any appeal was unsuccessful.

Murphy reportedly gained around 30 pounds last offseason in thinking he was going to play defensive end. But he stayed at linebacker and recorded 9.0 sacks.

He’s eligible for offseason work and the preseason, but will be ineligible for the first four weeks of the regular season.

    I didn’t know Washington had a player named Trent Murphy. Quite a coincidence to have the same name a player on the Redskins.

    But he went to Stanford. I thought they were above that. Didn’t think so.

    Kiss 25% of 2017 salary ($250K) down the toilet.

    Since Goodell became commissioner usually only teams playing the patriots the first 4 weeks would face multiple suspensions of players. Since “99%” of players know when tests are coming not sure what is going on now.

    You really have no grasp of how any of it works. Unlike drug testing PED tests are ‘random.’ Players do not know when they are coming.

    Least of the Washington problem.

    Let’s be real. Half the league is cheating with steroids and the other half is smoking dope.
    And 90% of the fans are smoking dope, too, when they’re not getting drunk at the stadium.
    It’s the 21st century — when all morals and values are to be ignored.

    A damn shame

    ______________
    The part they left out was that after gaining 30 pounds to play end, he lost 30 pounds to “stay” at linebacker. Total Redskins homer, love Murphy, but 60 pound swings don’t happen without PEDs.

    RG3 likes working out. Maybe he needs a line backing job.
