Football: Allen’s agent says story is not true

Clouds continue to gather over the NFL draft status of former Cal wide receiver Keenan Allen after ESPN.com reported Tuesday that his drug test at the combine was red-flagged.

Allen’s agent insists the story is wrong.

“We have received no notification about anything abnormal to his test. No team has requested a retest. Nobody,” said J.T. Johnson, adding that he first got wind of this when a reporter called him last Friday.

One thing is clear: Allen, once the consensus top prospect at his position, no longer is a sure thing to go in the draft’s first round on April 25.

    I tend to believe KA’s agent here. During the football season I went to Berkeley to do some research at the law library, when I saw KA and some friends walking to two cars on Bancroft. One of the friends looked like he was smoking a doobie, and he got into the same car as KA. KA immediately got out of the car, had some choice words for the friend (I was too far away to hear what was said), and he got into the other car before they drove away. I think KA has come too far to jeopardize his career and his livelihood by doing drugs.

    I posted about this on another thread. Based on what has been reported, I cannot understand how ESPN or anyone else could have put this ‘story’ out there based on so little and such flimsy information.
