NEW YORK (AP) -Dallas quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson, a former NFL quarterback, was suspended for five games by the NFL on Saturday for buying and using performance-enhancing substances.
Wilson said he took the drugs to try to improve the quality of his life after living with diabetes for more than 20 years.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said both Wilson's suspension and the suspension Friday of New England safety Rodney Harrison stemmed from the investigation by the Albany (N.Y.) district attorney's office. Authorities there have been looking into an Internet ring involving performance-enhancing drugs and allegedly involving athletes from a number of sports.
Aiello said the third NFL person involved in the investigation was Dr. Richard Ryzde, one of the Pittsburgh Steelers' team doctors. He had earlier been fired by the team.
