NFL Notes: DEA Investigation, Broncos, Cardinals, & Redskins

DEA Investigation

Jason La Canfora reports that the Drug Enforcement Administration is investigating claims of inappropriate distribution of painkillers by NFL teams.

This comes after a lawsuit was filed by former NFL players.

According to La Canfora, the DEA has agents at several NFL stadiums Sunday to question team doctors and trainers about their distribution of painkillers.
