Reuben Foster just failed a drug test [Merge]

Recommended Posts

 

OK.....

 

To recap....    he's got bad shoulders....

 

He's failed at least one drug test....

 

And the latest buzz is the NFL has concerns over the people that Foster hangs out with........

 

I think we have our candidate for 1st round player who might fall further than some think...

 

I'm not saying he falls out of the first round -- but he might -- only that once upon a time he was looked at by some as a top-5 guy.      Then it became top-10.      Then top-15 with Indy a possibility.

 

Now?      Who knows?

 

EDIT:    I just read that the failed drug test was at the COMBINE!!

 

I'll never understand kids who can't stay clean enough to be drug free at the combine.       You know when it is...    it's on the calendar.      you know how long you have to be off he stuff.    

 

And you STILL fail the test?

 

No thanks..........

Alright, this was the guy I have always wanted but it's becoming very clear he doesn't know how to be a functional human.

It could depend on the ramifications of the test

I could see a slip to the upper to mid 2nd, but no further. With it being a diluted sample vs an outright positive test for a substance, I can see a team pulling the trigger in the 2nd. I'm fine without taking him, but that also means Reddick becomes the #1 ILB prospect and most likely is gone by 15...

Yes

 

I just checked NFLs official document on this. As diluted sample isn't that rare, and in Olympic sports testing it happens quite often and isn't punished in anyway; but in NFL drug testing program, the criteria is very low so if one has that dilute sample, it's probably because some sort of diuretic/masking agent has been used.

 

Being very sick is another option but not sure that's the case here.

Do you guys even know how to read? It's a diluted sample. 

 

I also like his attitude regarding the "failed" drug test. It's hard to tell whether he actually has food poisoning, but the way he approached it was nice. If he falls to 15, I definitely want him there.

He is pretty sure now to fall to #15  what a dilemma. Did he cheat?  it looks like it but this could stink of a character issue so take him or not???

Diluted sample is a failed test?

In pretty much every facet of life, yes.

 

(EDIT: Just wanted to mention I wasn't trying to be condescending, I just read it a second time and wanted to make it clear my intention)

So sad to see a guy who had so much talent sabotage his future like this. Really liked the guy before all this crap came rolling down hill, and now more just keeps coming.

I worked in a drug rehab court program as an intern, it happens ALL. THE. TIME.  And they get called out on it with other people in the program in an effort to basically tell everyone else, "Hey, we know you drank too much water on purpose.  We can tell, so just don't do it or you'll get in more trouble for trying to evade it."  They knew they were getting tested, they were told not to drink over a certain amount within x hours before testing, but people did it anyway.

Couldn't agree more.  Speaks to plain old intelligence (or lack of it) or to some character flaw that is preventing him from making poor decisions.  Either one will eventually affect his play.

Yes, because people know how to avoid positive samples.  People do it all the time and its that reason that diluted samples are treated as positives.  This isn't some ground breaking concept.  It happens all the time in drug rehab programs because people seem to think they can get away with it (some actually do).  In their mind, i'ts better to drink too much water and hope to get away with it than go into a test and admit defeat.  

 

So when there's a diluted sample (and this is ESPECIALLY true when you know you are getting one), a diluted sample is rightfully treated as a positive result.  You are told beforehand not to drink to X amount water within X time before your test or it will dilute the sample and be treated as a positive.  If you go in and give a diluted sample, chances are, you're trying to cheat the results.

 

So yes, we know how to read.  We just know what it means when the sample is diluted.

Sure they did and that will never change.  I am "positive" RF knew he was getting tested too...and he also was aware of what you are saying...  maybe this was part of his aggravation prior to getting sent home.... he knew he would test positive.  Too bad, he is a good LBr..... someone will deal with it though just like always.

abbreviated for positive which I didn't expect to trigger the content filter, lol

The scary part is that Drug Screening at the combine is not new

That's a bit of an overstatement.

Yeah, this will drop his draft stock a bit - not sure how far.  It's always a toss up.  Tunsil dropped like 10 picks or something.  Randy Gregory dropped almost 2 rounds.  If I recall, Gregory tested positive at the combine, while Tunsil's was an old video.  So I'm thinking this is more like Gregory.  He may not drop that far because I think Gregory already had some weed busts on his record, but I wouldn't be surprised if Foster dropped a full round.

If the doctors gave the thumbs up I would still take him.  I couldn't care less about his argument with some nurse or whatever.

    • All I have to say is I hope the Raiders lose horrendously and Marshawn Lynche retires.
    • If we win out I think we make the playoffs. We can hand Balt and Buf losses and take the last playoff spot from them. This is all whimsical though.
    • The AFC is looking quite weak in general. I see the Pats and Steelers as the only serious contenders. JAX picked a good year to get serious. With some luck they could hit the AFC conference championship game. So yeah we could win out. The conference is in flux. I can't wait till Brady and Big Ben retire. There's a solid chance the AFC south sends two teams to playoffs next year.    
    • You have to admit Eli beating the Pats twice in the SB is priceless, once when they were 18-0 looking for perfection. Peyton 3-1 vs Brady too in Title Games, man those Manning's saved us from watching the Pats winning 10 SB's possibly. I am just glad Peyton went out on top and got that 2nd Ring as a starter. Getting Ring #2 validates that he is a great winner because only 11 other QB's have won 2 or more SB's as a starter. Anyone can win 1 but getting #2 proves a lot winning wise. Yeah Eli has won 2 as well but Peyton has 5 League MVP's to his 0. So I would take Peyton's career easily over Eli's now because of the 2nd Ring + the League MVP's. I am hoping Ben Roethlisberger doesn't win his 3rd because he isn't near the QB Peyton was, that would be sad if he had more SB wins. Ben is like Eli though = 0 League MVP's.    -Only Tom Brady (5), Joe Montana (4), Terry Bradshaw (4), and Troy Aikman (3) have won more SB's than Peyton as a starter. So even if someone wanted to go by just SB Rings, Peyton is still a Top 5 QB of all-time because League MVP's is the tiebreaker amongst the 2 Time winners. League MVP is easily the 2nd best thing to win only behind the SB. Winning League MVP means you were voted as the best player or most valuable by the media in the whole league. I just love how Peyton haters are so butt hurt the way he got #2 because Denver's D carried him in the SB . Peyton still earned #2 though because he played well vs the Pats. Brock would've never beat the Pats on that type of stage. Too much pressure and BB didn't fear him at all. Brock played well in that Reg Season and beat the Pats actually in the Reg Season but in a Title Game it would've never happened.
    • Different animal = great Playoff record. Flacco has always been solid in the Playoffs. He has also beat the Pats twice in 2009 and 2012, should've beat them in 2011 but his WR dropped a TD late in that Title Game.
