Pete Carroll stays silent on Seahawks suspensions

Scott Boehm

The Seahawks head coach didn't say a word on the suspension of his two star defensive players.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll refused to comment on the suspension of his two defensive players Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman, Chris Daniels of King 5 in Seattle reported on Monday.

Reports hit the news on Monday that Sherman and Browner both tested positive for Adderall, commonly given as a prescription to treat ADHD. The two now face a four-game suspension.

Both players have said they plan on fighting the suspensions. Carroll in the meantime won't be saying a word.

"I'm not gonna comment about anything about it," said Carroll, "This is a league issue."

Although Adderall is a fairly common drug, the NFL views it as a performance enhancer because it can potentially increase aggression, anxiety and shortness in emotion.

Sherman's agent Kevin Poston told USA Today that there is a good reason for why the substance was found in his client's system. Iff the suspensions are upheld, it will be a huge hit to the Seahawks defensive squad as the team looks to right the ship after a disappointing loss to the Dolphins on Sunday and continue a playoff push.
