In response to rumors swirling about a failed drug test, Bengals right end Antwan Odom released a statement Thursday night via Twitter denying he took performance-enhancing drugs or steroids.
Addressed to "My fans and teammates," Odom admitted in the tweet that he tested positive for a banned substance, but it is not steroids or (performance-enhancing drugs). More details to come, but it is a league issue that is now under appeal.
Odom, who could be suspended for four games, also said, "Just know I would never cheat to gain an edge in this game that I love. Don't lose your faith in me and please don't pass judgment on vicious rumors until the facts are known. Thank you all for the support. I really need it now. I love you all, Antwan."
