Seattle Seahawks corner back Richard Sherman claims that the cup that collected his urine specimen was broken, resulting in a “contaminated sample” that tested positive for PED’s, specifically, Adderall.
Sherman stated to ESPN that the second cup’s seal already had been broken before being used to stop the leakage from his cup, according to the source. Since the second cup’s seal was broken, the chain of custody also was broken, therefore nullifying Sherman’s positive test for Adderall.
Sherman and his representatives argued that his tested urine sample was contaminated as a result of the second cup. If the collector confirmed the second cup’s seal was broken, there would be grounds for Sherman escaping his suspension.
The verdict is expected to be this week.
Sherman will be playing in tonight’s NFC West rival match up against Colin Kaepernick and the San Fransisco 49ers.
