Steroids And The Cowboys: A New List To Chew On

By Dave Moore |

The San Diego Union-Tribune recently published a story alleging that more than 185 players have used steroids while in the NFL. The following probably won’t be news to Cowboys trivia buffs. Regardless, here’s the ‘Boys-related meat that the writer, Brent Schrotenboer, gives us:

OL (Offensive Lineman) Louis Cheek (1990) - Suspended three games after positive steroid test.

DT (Defensive Tackle) Danny Noonan (1987) - Tested positive at combine before draft. Also said he used steroids during his NFL career, which lasted until 1992.

Strength coach Bob Ward (1983) – Said about 25 percent, “maybe more,” of the team used steroids, according to the Omaha World Herald.

DL (Defensive Lineman) John Dutton (1970s-1980s) – Said he liked to take them during preseason before they were banned, according to the World Herald.
