They say when it rains it pours and NFL star Orlando Scandrick just received bad news for the second time this week.
A few days ago Basketball wives reality star Draya stated that she has decided to end her relationship with the NFL star and just recently he was suspended from the Dallas Cowboys after testing positive for Molly.
According to ESPN, back in April the NFL cornerback failed a mandatory drug test after he returned from his Mexico vacation with Draya.
And due to the violation of the NFL’s drug policy Orlando will have to sit out four games, payback his signing bonus as well miss out on $1 million dollars.
Shortly after his suspension was announced to the media Orlando released a statement stating that somebody slipped the Molly in his drink without his knowledge however he still took full responsibility for his actions.
“I would like to apologize to my children, my family, the Jones Family, my coaches, my teammates and my fans,” Scandrick said in a statement. “Failing a drug test is far out of my character, and although I never knowingly took a performance enhancing drug/banned stimulant while on vacation in Mexico, I take full responsibility for what goes in my body and more importantly for the embarrassment of a failed drug test.
It’s my goal by issuing this statement to clear my name and more importantly to be judged by what happens to me in the future. I hope that my family, my Cowboys football family and all my fans can forgive me for this situation. I look forward to a successful 2014 season.”
Scandrick will be eligible to return to the Cowboys’ roster Sept. 29, following the team’s Week 4 game against New Orleans.”
After Orlando released a statement stating that he didn’t knowingly take the drug people started assuming that Draya might have slipped her boyfriend a molly however Draya quickly stated that she did nothing but support Orlando.
“Sources” say I drugged this man ….. People have written statements taking responsibility for their actions …. Never once blaming me. I’m not to blame …. I’ve been supporting him since April when this happened. And I will continue to support him.
She also stated:
If someone says to you “all you care about is your image” …. Be careful, they might try to ruin it. It was so easy in the past to tarnish my own name, and I work hard every day trying to make better choices to clean that up. It was so easy in the past to tarnish my own name, and I work hard every day trying to make better choices to clean that up.
Orlando signed a five year $25 million dollar contract back in 2011 and in 2013 he extended his contract for an additional $9 million dollars in guaranteed money.
If you ask me it sounds like Orlando is trying to blame Draya for getting caught popping Molly’s.
