Former NFL linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo alleges some of his former teammates smoked marijuana before a Super Bowl.

Ayanbadejo did not comment which players or which team were guilty. He played in the Super Bowl for the Baltimore Ravens last season and the Chicago Bears in 2007.

The comments from Ayanbedejo came during a FOX Sports podcast with former NFL linebacker Scott Fujita. They are posted below transcribed from the Baltimore Sun.

“I’m not going to say which Super Bowl it was but I just remember getting off the elevator one night — it was early on in the week, just to start the week off — and all of the sudden I just got hit over the head with fumes of marijuana on the entire floor of the hotel that the team was staying on,” Ayanbadejo said. “I could just imagine there were a few young guys just toking it up in more than one room. I was like, ‘Man this is the week of the Super Bowl and you’re just going in?’

“So then I was looking around, and I’m like ‘OK, where is the security?’ I looked and for some reason we didn’t have regular police — coach was smart enough to have rent-a-cops on our floor instead of regular police like we usually do. I scratched my head but I was like, ‘OK, uh, that’s a good thing ’cause . . .’ that’s it. That’s all I’ve got to say about that.”
