Jabrill Peppers denies claims about drug usage from fired Cleveland radio host
It took roughly 13 seconds for Jabrill Peppers to deny some strong accusations made against him by former ESPN Cleveland radio host Sabrina Parr.
That radio host, who was later fired, said that Peppers was “high all the time” and that he wasn’t going to make it in the NFL because of a drug problem.
As expected, the former Michigan star was asked about those claims on Friday:

“Absolutely not. Never in my life,” Peppers said. “I’m not even gonna get into that because that’s…but no, whatever drugs she said I’ve done, I’ve never done in my life.”
Parr claimed that Peppers was on the Lean and Molly, both of which are banned substances.
This was sparked by Peppers dilute sample at the NFL Scouting Combine. After that report surfaced, Peppers said in a statement that was a result of his hydration before competing at two different positions on consecutive days at the combine.
Still, a dilute sample is treated as a failed drug test. Peppers will enter the first stage of the NFL’s drug program, which means he’ll be tested more frequently.
Peppers will not be suspended by the league unless he fails another test.
