    Brian Cushing tested positive for banned substance and the NFL has suspended him for 4 games.

    Interesting part is that Cushing trains with MM Athletes - Jay Glazer's company.

    Certainly calls into question Jay's credibility on this matter.

    There's no question on his credibility on this matter. He doesn't have any.

    Glazer should not be covering this, considering the incredibly awkward last line of his report:

    "Cushing began training in February with MMAthletics, a program run by FOX Sports NFL Sunday insider Jay Glazer and mixed martial arts legend Randy Couture."

    You should read Jay Glazer's tweets about this. They have gone from Glazer saying that anyone who does steroids will be banned from training with him to Cush deserves another chance cuz he's a young kid.

    Does Fox test its little reporters?

    Why does Fox let him get away with being that involved with these guys to begin with?

    Can we come back to this for a minute, I don't get it.

    Did someone else insert the line? There's an 'AP contributed' note at the bottom, but come on, it's Glazer's byline, how does this make sense to anyone??

    Steroid rumors have circulated around Cushing while he was at USC. This is no surprise.

    "I did not take a steroid"

    Might be true but does not address HGH.

    This is a very interesting debate.

    I think Glazer is one of the best NFL reporters out there. If there was a big story out there, I'd bet on him to break it.

    But he's training with a lot of these guys and I definitely don't think he's capable of being partial anymore. Then again, a lot of the ESPN guys share agents with a ton of coaches and athletes and are not partial either. At least Glazer hasn't hidden that he's working out with these guys.

    He's not just training 'with' them, he has a financial stake in their training. It's his business.

    I just don't get how Fox let him write that story.

    All very true. Hell, I think the Falcons are employing his company to help with their postseason programs.
