Lehr's 'roids supplier tells all



Lehr Guard-center Matt Lehr hasn't played much this season and thus hasn't been in the news.

This isn't the way you want to make your first headline of the season, but Lehr has been linked to a Dallas-area personal trainer who claims to have supplied steroids to current and former Cowboys players.

Citing anonymous sources, the Dallas Morning News is reporting that Lehr's name was given to authorities by the trainer, David Jacobs, who identified Lehr as a player he supplied steroids to. The trainer is cooperating with authorities in exchange for leniency in his sentencing.

This is hardly a surprise. We know that Lehr has taken banned substances in the past because last season he was suspended by the league for a violation of the drug policy. Lehr was drafted by the Cowboys in 2001 and played for them until joining the Falcons in 2005.

He hasn't commented so far, but we'll see whether he'll be willing to address this after today's workout at One Buc Place.

The full story in the Morning News can be read here.
