Browns rookie Peppers defends reputation amid drug talk

Just a few days ago, ESPN Cleveland Radio host and former lingerie football player Sabrina Parr tried to set social media on fire when she accused Jabrill Peppers, 25th overall pick in the 2017 Draft, of being on the drugs Molly & Lean. And with still no precise reason provided for Peppers joining an extremely short list of draft picks to refuse to sign a participation agreement, it's fair to wonder why the agreement wasn't signed on Friday, and why things changed so sharply in one day.

He says a long-time problem with cramping forced him to drink too much water at the scouting combine.

Parr said later in the show that veteran Browns offensive lineman Joe Thomas, who ripped the National Football League for counting diluted samples as positive tests, is also on the lean.

"That is your speculation", Peppers said regarding the potential desire to avoid drug testing.

He dismisses allegations made about him this week on a Cleveland radio program. "I'm just going to do what I got to do to get out (of the program) to be the best ballplayer I can be". "I came here to play football and help this great organization get back to prominence".

Cody Kessler, 0-8 as a starter past year, will be with the first team when organized team activities begin on May 23, Jackson said. "I just try to perform my best on the field".

The last time Sergio Garcia hit a ball in front of a crowd it travelled a mere 15 yards. The Spaniard triumphed at TPC Sawgrass in 2008 and was a runner-up in 2007 and 2015.

"Whatever Coach Jackson's plan is for me, I'm going to attack it 110 percent", he said.

It will be fantastic when all the Jabrill Peppers talk is about what he's doing on the field and not what people who don't know him think he might be doing off the field. "In light of my excitement I forgot that there's also a business aspect, so fortunately we were able to get it handled today [and] I get to be out there with the guys".

Peppers said he isn't upset he was entered into Stage One of the drug program. I'm happy to be here.

"Absolutely not. No one's going to take this moment away from me".

Parr also said Browns player Joe Thomas was "on the lean too". "I was working out for two position groups (at the combine) and I was informed to hydrate".

"Listen, the guy's not gonna make it. Stay clean. Nothing more than that".
