12:57 PM ET 12.28 | Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was "randomly selected" to take a drug test on Thursday, the same day he won an appeal for a four-game suspension because of a past drug test, according to the Tacoma News Tribune's Eric Williams. Quite a coincidence. Sherman was cleared Thursday after testing positive for Adderall, and he announced the NFL's decision via Twitter. The news comes a day after Sherman was left off the Pro Bowl roster despite his 61 tackles and seven interceptions for the Seahawks this season.

If he's not taking Adderall, he should have nothing to worry about. Is he that surprised he was tested again?

Everytime I've heard him speak he's never said he DIDN"T take the adderall. He's only said the sample was obtained incorrectly. This guy is dirty, everyone knows it.

He could get a prescription and take it legally. Adderall isn't banned, but you just can't use it off the street.

I wonder how many guys have been randomly selected twice in a row that we've never heard about because they didn't pop positive? I'm guessing there'll be no mistakes with the sample this time so if he comes up positive again he's going to get a rep as a juicer that he'll never shake.

Better do the 'Chicago Fire' thing. "Your urine is clean buddy, but you're, uh, pregnant.

December 28, 2012  04:06 PM ET

Rep as a juicer??? He's not juicing! That's what people dont understand, he can get a prescription and be permitted by the NFL to take Adderall. It is a legal drug within the rules of football, HGH is not legal period...

December 28, 2012  04:06 PM ET

Rep as a juicer?? You're kidding me right.. He's not taking HGH or boosting his testosterone levels. He's taking a drug that is legal within the game of football as long as you have a prescription and clearance from the nfl.. Sherman was just stupid and didnt have have a prescription.. Adderrall does not = Steroids .. Lay off the haterade

So, by your account he's already broken one rule. How many more free passes does he get?

Calm down Buck, he is indeed stupid if he sees countless other players get suspended for taking it and 1)either quits taking it 2)or gets a script. It is a Class II controlled substance like cocaine, morphine and methadone. It is illegal to possess without a prescription. Adderal is a mixture of 4 amphetamines, if you don't think that will give you a boost you are deluded. Some may call that "juicing"; no Haterade intended.
