This doesn’t look like a person who used steroids of any kind right? Oh nevermind.
Anyway, Terrell Owens was placed in a program of enhanced testing under the NFL’s policy on anabolic steroids and other substances. He will be tested more… a lot more. He could be tested for performance enhancing drugs up to 24 times randomly in the year.
Owens was placed in the program because he missed day-of telephone calls to set up random tests, the sources said. A player who misses a test can be subject to disciplinary action, but because Owens had a “plausible” explanation, league administrators decided he would not be suspended or fined.
Owens is not worried about the additional drug testing and he has the confidence of his boss so it shouldn’t be that bad for him.
“Before I ever extended Terrell’s contract, I knew that he had communciation issues with the league but, trust me, I also know firsthand who he is and what he’s all about,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Monday. “Because of that, I didn’t hesitate to give him [$27 million] and I negotiated that while this was going on. Anybody who knows me knows I would never under any circumstance give away that kind of money if I had any suspicion or evidence that there was some kind of risk like that involved. There is no risk with Terrell.”
