Jeremy Kerley insists he has never “knowingly” taken a banned substance. The New York Jets wide receiver said if you don’t believe him, just look at his build.

After the league made Kerley’s four-game suspension official, banishing him from of the team facility until Dec. 11, Kerley released a statement through his agent.

“I was shocked by a positive test for Turinabol, as I have never knowingly taken any banned substances,” Kerley’s statement reads, via Brian Costello of the New York Post. “I am 5’9” tall and 180 pounds, and I have never used steroids in my life. I’m a good athlete but anyone can look at my body composition and tell that I’m not a steroid user. While I did not have enough time prior to the deadline to resolve this case, I fully intend to investigate this matter until I am able to figure out what caused the positive test, because I know that I have done nothing wrong. When I find out what substance was tainted, I will pursue all remedies at that time because this is not right. I have and will always be a clean player, and I look forward to returning to the Jets to play against the Saints next month.”

Kerley has made 22 catches for 217 yards and one touchdown this season.

  1. Turinabol isn’t even manufactured anymore (google it), you can ONLY get it from a gray/black market seller or someone who makes it. If that’s what he tested positive for, he or someone close to him went out and got it on purpose.

    It also doesn’t bulk you up like other steroids, so his claim of “…but anyone can look at my body composition and tell that I’m not a steroid user.” falls totally and completely flat.

    Sorry, my BS meter is going off with that statement (especially the fact that he doesn’t seem like he’s appealing it). My guess is he took it and got caught.

  2. He listed the substance he got popped for, unlike those who just say “tainted supplement”. To me, that indicates he might actually be telling the truth. Or rather, I’m more inclined to believe him.

  3. I have never knowingly taken any banned substances

    That may be true but you have to know what’s going into your body. You have to read the label on supplements or whatever it was he took. I regularly read the labels on anything before I buy it and I make a mere fraction of the money these guys make. You’d think with that much money at stake they’d pay more attention to what they are ingesting.
