Joe Haden could be suspended four games by the NFL after reportedly testing positive for Adderall on an offseason drug test.
According to one source, Haden tested positive for Adderall during an offseason drug test administered by the NFL. Haden has reportedly been notified of the positive test result. If a second test of the original sample also turns up positive, Haden would miss four games according to the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
Adderall is commonly prescribed to treat attention deficit disorder. It has made its way on the NFL's list of banned substances as a stimulant, however.
Both Haden and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, declined to comment. Haden would lose due pay for each game suspended, which in his case amounts to $1.356 million. He would also be ineligible for the Pro Bowl and any honors or awards bestowed by the league or the NFL Players Association.
