The DEA paid surprise visits to several NFL teams after their games this past Sunday and questioned their medical and training staffs. These "spot checks" were apparently part of an ongoing investigation sparked by a class action suit alleging widespread abuse of painkillers in the league. The agents didn't make any arrests. In a statement the NFL said:
"Our teams cooperated with the DEA today, and we have no information to indicate that irregularities were found."
Marcellus Wiley is one of about 1,300 former NFL players involved in that class action lawsuit and a commentator with ESPN. He spoke to Anderson, along with his attorney Steven Silverman.
