NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee linebacker Ryan Fowler
considers his steroids case with the NFL closed. Fowler said Wednesday he hasn't heard from the league since requesting a meeting to address allegations that he bought steroids from a Texas-based dealer in 2006.
The NFL sent him a letter in June stating he faced an investigation and possible suspension. Until the league indicates otherwise, Fowler said he will assume the probe has ended with no punishment planned.
Fowler was linked to convicted steroids dealer David Jacobs, who
was found dead with a female companion in his Plano, Texas, home in
June in what police called a murder-suicide.
Jacobs told The Dallas Morning News before he died that he had
supplied Fowler with performance-enhancing drugs before and after
the 2006 season, and he gave the NFL names of players who bought
steroids from him.
