Ravens’ Joe Flacco Says PED Use Is ‘Bad for All Sports’
(NEW YORK) — Super Bowl MVP quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of performance-enhancing drugs in any sport. The Baltimore Ravens quarterback believes it’s time to put the hammer down on those who violate any drug policy.
“I am definitely one of the guys… test me and the guys as many ways as you can to make sure that there is nobody in the league that’s on anything. The last thing that I want to be doing is having my guys, that I’m pretty sure are natural, going against guys that aren’t,” Flacco said on Wednesday.
His teammate, cornerback Asa Jackson was recently suspended for eight games after he violated the NFL’s drug policy for the second time in his career.
In wake of the recent suspensions laid down by the MLB to 13 players, Flacco doesn’t encourage any player to use PED’s.
“The biggest thing for us as players is you don’t want your guys to be put in situations where they feel like they have to do that to overcome guys that are doing that. It’s bad for all sports, and sports as a whole. You want to go out there and you want to play on a level playing field and you want the best to be the best. You don’t want that stuff to have any part in that,” he continued.
