Two-Time Winner Brendan Ayanbadejo Admits Players Smoked Marijuana Before Super Bowl

Two-Time Winner Brendan Ayanbadejo Admits Players Smoked Marijuana Before Super Bowl

Former Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears linebacker Brendan Ayanbadejo has revealed that some of his team-mates smoked marijuana just days before one of his Super Bowl wins.

Ayanbadejo was on a winning Bears team in Super Bowl XLI in 2006 and the victorious Super Bowl XLVII Ravens team from last season.

But he refused to reveal which team it in an interview earlier this week.

He said: “I’m not going to say which Super Bowl it was, but I just remember getting off the elevator one night.

“It was early on in the [Super Bowl] week, just to start the week off and all of a sudden I just got hit over the head with fumes of marijuana on the entire floor of the hotel that the team was staying on… I could just imagine there were a few young guys just toking it up in more than one room.”

It’s a particularly interesting admission given both teams competing in this Sunday’s event – the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos – come from states which have recently legalised marijuana.

Maybe it wouldn’t be a bad move for the rest of America to follow suit?
