It is being reported that Jermaine Cunningham’s drug of choice was Adderall, a stimulant generally prescribed to people with ADD. It is a popular excuse for NFL players because it sounds relatively benign, like popping a NoDoz or drinking an espresso. The NFL won’t confirm the drug for which a player tested positive, so it’s up to you whether you want to believe it.
Here’s my take:
I don’t believe it.
But I don’t blame Cunningham, either.
