Photos: Meet the seven most recent Seahawks accused of using performance enhancing drugs
When people saw Seahawks star Richard Sherman's crazed rant after Seattle's victory over the 49ers on January 19, many probably wondered, "What is he on?" Turns out Sherman has been accused of using performance-enhancing drugs, but his suspension was nixed on appeal. Plenty of his teammates haven't been as lucky, though: The other six Seahawks charged with PED gobbling have been suspended, including a number who'll be playing in Sunday's Super Bowl. Meet them below, complete with photos and memes highlighting Seattle's pill-popping rep.
Big photos and more below.
Number 7: John Moffitt
From NBC Sports, December 6, 2011: "Seahawks rookie offensive lineman John Moffitt has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
"Moffitt was already on injured reserve and wouldn't have played in the final four games of the season anyway, so the suspension effectively just means he'll be fined four weeks' pay."
The fallout: Moffitt was traded to Cleveland this past August, but that transaction fell through -- so Seattle instead dealt him to Denver (!). But in November, he retired from football, reportedly over health concerns.
Number 6: Allen Barbre
From ESPN, May 23, 2012: "Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Allen Barbre was suspended for the first four regular-season games by the NFL on Wednesday for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances.
"Barbre is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games."
