Bears | Ayanbadejo suspended for four games

Thu, 09 Aug 2007 11:20:54 -0700

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports Chicago Bears FB Obafemi Ayanbadejo will be suspended for the first four games of the NFL regular season for failing a drug test. Ayanbadejo was informed Tuesday, Aug. 7, that he lost an appeal to the league for having an anti-estrogen component in his system during a random drug test back in January while he was a member of the Arizona Cardinals. Ayanbadejo said he plans to pursue legal action against the maker of Max LMG, as he believes it was not properly labeled and led to his positive test. "What was in my system was not a steroid," he said. "There's a difference between an anabolic steroid and an anti-estrogen component. But the league considers that a related substance. I took a supplement that had an anti-estrogen component and I did not know it was contained in the supplement."

AZCardinals.com reports Arizona Cardinals FB Obafemi Ayanbadejo credits tight ends coach Carl Hargrave with helping shape him into a more complete player early in his career.

"I credit Carl for a lot of the basic skills and foundation I have because he told me to learn everything and they'd figure out where I really fit later," Ayanbadejo said. "That roster was stacked with 53 guys who could play so for me to make it I had to be able to do it all and be good at it all. I think I've just kept it like that throughout my career and I'm very comfortable with what needs to be done."
