STATEMENT BY WR JEREMY KERLEY
"I was shocked by a positive test for Turinabol, as I have never knowingly taken any banned substances. I am 5'9" tall and 180 pounds, and I have never used steroids in my life. I'm a good athlete but anyone can look at my body composition and tell that I'm not a steroid user. While I did not have enough time prior to the deadline to resolve this case, I fully intend to investigate this matter until I am able to figure out what caused the positive test, because I know that I have done nothing wrong. When I find out what substance was tainted, I will pursue all remedies at that time because this is not right. I have and will always be a clean player, and I look forward to returning to the Jets to play against the Saints next month."
