Jabrill Peppers has been criticized by everyone, including Michigan fans, for not playing in the Orange Bowl against Florida State. But the newest Cleveland Brown wants to clear his name.
Peppers tweeted out video of a Wolverines’ onside kick drill in which he comes up lame, grabbing his hamstring.
Speculate on what you want but my love for this game should never be questioned! Never would I fake an injury to miss a game. pic.twitter.com/MLaaqKPzMI

The timing is curious — why would Peppers tweet this out right after he was drafted in the first round?
Either way, he wants Michigan fans to know he wasn’t sitting out the Orange Bowl to rest — he says he was actually hurt.
