[quote="Jake Carlson"][quote="Jim Frenette"]This is a frist for me. Wade Wilson QB coach is suspended 5 games for using PED. Is this while he was playing or not to make him a better coach? I saw that story as well, Fargo. How odd is this?

The NFL on Saturday confirmed that Dallas Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson admitted to NFL officials that he received illegal drugs while an assistant with the Chicago Bears. Wilson, who has been suspended for five games by the league, told ESPN.com's Matt Mosley that he took a substance which he did not specify to treat his diabetes. He said he did not pass the drugs along to anyone else and that he had "no regrets on trying to improve my quality of life." According to the New York Daily News, Wilson admitted receiving human growth hormone while working for the Bears from 2004-06. The league said that Harrison, Wilson and Richard Ryzde, a former doctor for the Pittsburgh Steelers, were involved in an Internet pharmaceutical distribution ring for steroids and other performance enhancers being investigated by the Albany (N.Y.) District Attorney's office.
