Well, it’s time for another memo from the Commissioner.
Jay Glazer of FOX Sports and NFL Network reports that Arizona State linebacker Vontaze Burfict and Virginia Tech cornerback Jayron Hosley failed drug tests at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
For Burfict, the news cements his dramatic fall from grace. Though a failed drug test standing alone won’t necessarily get a guy stricken from draft boards, for Burfict it could be the thing that keeps him from getting drafted at all. By anyone. (Other than perhaps the Lions.)
Glazer reports that Hosley sent a letter to teams apologizing for the positive test.
Meanwhile, in the month since Commissioner Roger Goodell responded to our report regarding cornerback Morris Claiborne’s Wonderlic score with a memo reminding all teams of the confidentiality of pre-draft information, three additional breaches have occurred.
In each case, the reporter passing along the confidential information leaked by one or more NFL teams was employed by or affiliated with NFL Network.
