Sabrina Parr fired by ESPN after accusing Jabrill Peppers, Joe Thomas of drug use

Jabrill Peppers

An ESPN contributor has reportedly been fired by the network after she accused Jabrill Peppers of being “high all the time” during a radio spot this week.

Sabrina Parr, who appears on ESPN 850 in Cleveland from time to time, dropped some serious accusations during an appearance on “The Real Big Show” Wednesday morning. She insisted that Peppers tested positive for a diluted sample at the NFL Scouting Combine because he is “on the lean and the molly.”

The show’s Reddit forum spliced together some of Parr’s comments:

“The guy’s not gonna make it. He’s not gonna make it through the season. He’s another Josh Gordon,” Parr said. “I’m telling you I’ve seen it first-hand from a different vantage point. It’s the same thing all over again. How are you already high out of your mind and you’ve only been here for a week?”

For those of you who don’t know your street drugs, “the lean” is a drink that involves mixing codeine with Sprite and candy. Molly is essentially ecstasy.

Parr said later in the show that veteran Browns offensive lineman Joe Thomas, who ripped the NFL for counting diluted samples as positive tests, is also on the lean. Though, it sounded like she was joking with that remark and she later tried to backpedal on Twitter.

The damage was already done, as Awful Announcing reported on Thursday that ESPN 850 has terminated its relationship with Parr.

It’s unclear why Peppers failed a test at the combine. Some people are inclined to think his excuse is bogus, but Parr’s accusations were irresponsible if she doesn’t have concrete evidence to support them.
