Odom Issues Twitter Post Regarding Rumors

In response to the report that broke earlier today that DE Antwan Odom tested positive for a banned substance, and was facing a four-game suspension, the starting right end and Delroy Lindo look-alike posted the following statement via Twitter:

 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.”

For the sake of Antwan and his reputation, we hope that he gets a fair review of his case, and that if he is found to be innocent, that his good name be restored.  In the meantime, let’s hope this isn’t an undue distraction to the team as they head to Foxboro for Sunday’s tilt with the Patriots.
