12:31 PM ET 04.11 | Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman says he was misquoted by the Vancouver Sun earlier this week during an interview on NFL AM on Thursday morning, according to Pro Football Talk. On Wednesday it was reported that Sherman said "about half the league" takes Adderall. Regarding the misquote, Sherman said on Thursday, "I didn't say that. It's just another case of these writers trying to gain a little notoriety in an interview. What I said was, 'There's a bunch of guys in the league on prescription for Adderall.'" Despite the discrepancy, Sherman's basic message is the same. "I've never seen people get prescribed a performance-enhancing drug, you know what I mean? So I don't understand, you know, what everybody is so -- you know, they go so crazy about it when some of these guys test positive for it, but a bunch of guys have prescriptions for it, so it's, like, you know, kind of misleading," Sherman went on to explain.

Misquoted? Hey in air traffic control training 101, on day one, we instructed students, once you say something on the air, its said. You cannot undo it. Its out there.

So is this guy called the radio station a liar because he said something on the air? What a dink.

"Like, I didn't say that, you know what I mean? I never said, like, that half the league takes Adderall, know what I'm sayin'? It's, like, more like 90% of the league is, you know, on Adderall, dig? Peace out!"
