Briggs' advice to Cushing: 'Cheaters rarely prosper'
Once training camps get going it will be interesting to see if there is more reaction leaguewide to the four-game suspension Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing pulled down for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
There has been a fair amount of fallout since Cushing’s suspension was announced and he said he had absolutely no idea how he tested positive for a female fertility drug used by hardcore steroid users at the end of cycles to re-start the production of testosterone in their bodies.
Then, of course, there was the re-vote for Cushing’s defensive rookie of the year award which turned into a major fiasco. In the process, Cushing did lose his spot on the Associated Press All-Pro second team. With Cushing dropping out, Chicago’s Lance Briggs and Pittsburgh’s James Harrison were awarded a spot because of a tie in the balloting.
“Cheaters rarely prosper," Briggs told the Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune. “I don't know what the whole deal was, but I just know he did things you ain't supposed to do.
“Five years from now, 10 years from now, all they're going to see for me is All-Pro. Yeah, it makes me feel good.”
