Cleveland Sports Radio Host Accuses Jabrill Peppers Of Abusing Drugs, Promptly Gets Fired
There's hot takes, and then there are takes so hot that you get fired. Claiming your football team's first round draft pick is on drugs with no evidence is one of those kinds of takes.
Sabrina Parr, a now former radio host at ESPN 850 in Cleveland, accused Jabrill Peppers of "being on the Lean and the Molly" and that his over-hydration issue at the NFL Scouting Combine was to mask his drug use.
Peppers tested positive for a diluted sample at the combine.
For the uninitiated, Lean refers to a mixed drink that uses an opiate (codeine) and Molly is a form of ecstasy.
Peppers claims his diluted sample came from over-hydration since he was ill and fighting cramping prior to the workouts.
Parr also went on to compare Peppers to Josh Gordon who has a long history of marijuana use that has seen him suspended frequently. ESPN 850 announced her dismissal on Wednesday.
Her comments from the show are below.
