NFL | Newton Comments on Drug Involvement

The Associated Press reports former NFL OL Nate Newton said in an interview his competitive nature led him to become involved in the drug business. "I've always been competitive. I've always been in sports," Newton told Dallas radio station KKDA. "I couldn't see myself not being the biggest dope man." Newton was released from jail last year after serving a 2 1/2 year sentence. Newton estimated he could have made up to $75,000 per drug deal, another reason he said running drugs appealed to him. He was caught twice in possession of marijuana.
