No Way Shawne Merriman is Still on Steroids, Right?

Buffalo Sports Daily – According to a reliable source close to the situation, Buffalo Bills linebacker Shawne Merriman was caught carrying steroids near the United States border late Thursday night, July 28 on the eve of Bills’ training camp.

According to the source, while trying to cross Canada back into the United States, Merriman was detained  by United States Customs shortly after 2:00am.  There, the source tells me steroids were found in his possession. He was not arrested and booked because from what I’m told, simply being in the possession of the substance is not technically illegal.

I’m certainly no legal analyst or NFL league rules expert, and I don’t know what, if any ramifications simply being caught in possession of a steroid substance will carry. I can’t and won’t speculate if Merriman has actually taken steroids anytime recently, but my source says he was caught with them in his possession.

I have to reiterate that doesn’t mean Merriman has taken steroids recently or done anything illegal.

Stay tuned for more details as they become available.  Knowing the consequence of being wrong, I wouldn’t post if not fully confident in the accuracy of this report.

For the record, I’ve sat on this story for close to three weeks—and numerous mainstream media members I’ve confided in can attest to that.

I wish I could say I was shocked. I’m really not. Maybe a little. Shocked at how dumb Merriman is IF this is true. If it’s not… sucks for Lights Out. Sucks because now his name has been dragged through the mud for doing nothing wrong. Doubt that though. 2AM? The Border? Shady, much?

I mean, that doesn’t look like a dude on roids, right? Chalk one up to A.J. Smith for letting him go. Go Bolts.
