Days after a Cleveland radio host accused Jabrill Peppers of being “on the lean and the molly” and was subsequently fired, Peppers got a chance to respond.
But the former Michigan star didn’t waste much time firing back. He dismissed the claims and moved on.
“I’m not even going to get into that. Whatever drugs she said I’ve done, I’ve never done in my life,” Peppers told reporters Friday.

Peppers was the subject of some criticism after he had a diluted drug test sample at the NFL combine. That includes from media personalities in his new home city.
On ESPN Radio 850 in Cleveland, Sabrina Parr said, “[Peppers] is on the lean and the molly. The guy’s not going to make it. He’s not going to make it through the season.” She also compared Peppers to former Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, who has been out of the NFL for two seasons after failing multiple drug tests.
Parr was fired by the radio station shortly after she made her claims.
