Cleveland Radio Host Accuses Jabrill Peppers of Drinking Lean?

Updated: May 11, 2017

As you know, the 2017 NFL Draft was one that had a lot of questionable selections in it. There were some pretty bizarre moments including the Denver Broncos reaching for Garrett Boles (only lineman taken in the first) to the Browns getting an additional selection to secure Jabrill Peppers.

But was it a reach? Is Peppers a concern off the field?

A Cleveland radio host insinuated Peppers might be getting his Future Hendrix on:

The Browns selected Jabrill Peppers in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, even after the former Michigan safety tested positive for a dilute sample at the NFL Combine in March.

Now former ESPN Radio Cleveland host Sabrina Parr thinks it was a mistake by the Browns and explained why Wednesday morning.

While comparing Peppers to troubled Browns receiver Josh Gordon, who has a long history of substance abuse, Parr believes Peppers also abuses drugs.

WKNR announced Wednesday night it had terminated Parr’s employment.

“He’s on the lean and the molly,” Parr said on “The Really Big Show” on ESPN 850. “The guy’s not going to make it. He’s not going to make it through the season.

“He’s another Josh Gordon … I’ve seen it first-hand from a different vantage point, and it’s the same thing all over again. How are you already high out of your mind, and you’ve only been here for a week.”

Even after show hosts Tony Rizzo and Aaron Goldhammer tried to get Parr to walk back her statements, she doubled down and even joked that 10-time Pro Bowler Joe Thomas was “on the lean,” which is also known as “purple drink” or “sizzurp.”

“I guess I can’t say certain things,” Parr said before she was interrupted by one of her co-hosts with, “No. You can’t.”

Now all of this is ALLEGED and I have no knowledge. I will just say that if he struggles mightily Sabrina’s words will pop back up into the conversation in Cleveland.
