Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

NFL | League hit by 'rash of positive' drug tests reports there has been a "rash of positive tests under the steroid policy as a result of players taking water pills to lose weight," according to FOX 31 Denver, citing a highly-placed NFL source. New Orleans Saints RB Deuce McAllister and DL Will Smith were reportedly among the positive tests. McAllister and Smith are in a group of players that have tested positive for Bumetanide, a diuretic frequently used for weight loss, but also for masking the use of steroids or other drugs. All of the players who tested positive are subject to suspension, though they can appeal. Under the league's steroid policy, a first positive test results in a four-game suspension.
