Mathieu: I Failed 10+ Drug Tests at LSU
If former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu is telling the truth, he was on a very long leash at LSU.
According to an NFL assistant coach who spoke with USA Today, when his team asked Mathieu during their interview how many drug tests he had failed in college, Mathieu responded, “I quit counting at 10. I really don’t know.”
While Mathieu’s former dependence on drugs (reportedly speaking) is an obvious red flag for NFL teams, the aforementioned assistant coach also pinned a lot of the blame on LSU.
“If he flunked 10 tests before they suspended him, it shows that he got no kind of help,” he said.
Hopefully, whatever team takes a risk on Mathieu can provide him that help.
