Yesterday it was leaked that former Red Raider and current Denver Broncos receiver Wes Welker would be suspended four games for violating the leagues performance enhancing drug policy.

Welker reportedly tested positive for 'Molly' which is a street name for Ecstasy. But in an email written to the Denver Post Welker adamantly denies ever knowingly taking the drug.

"I'm as shocked as everyone at todays news," Welker said in an e-mail to The Denver Post. "I want to make one thing abundantly clear: I would NEVER knowingly take a substance to gain a competitive advantage in any way. Anyone who has ever played a down with me, lifted a weight with me, even eaten a meal with me, knows that I focus purely on what I put in my body and on the hard work I put in year round to perform at the highest levels year-in and year-out.
