Schmitt Ballin': Bruce Irvin Tests Positive for PEDs
Seahawks’ start defensive end Bruce Irvin tested positive for performance enhancing drugs. He has also received a four game suspension to start the season. This really hurts the Seahawks team. Their secondary had been one of the best in the lately, and he was a pivotal part. Now that Seattle has acquired Percy Harvin, they are a definite threat to win the 2013 Super Bowl. Its obviously too soon to tell just how much this will effect their long term success, but it definitely hurts their chances. The good thing is that it is only a four game suspension. Any longer, and the Seahawks would be in trouble. But regardless, without a great d-back like Irvin for the start of the season, Seattle will definitely be at a loss as the season begins this fall.
