The NFL is investigating the San Diego Chargers for using an illegal “stickum like” substance on Monday Night Football against the Denver Broncos, FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer is reporting. Before we go any further, it’s important to point out that the Chargers surrendered 35 straight points in the second half to lose the game by a score of 35-24.

Here is Glazer’s report:

He added:

NFL Security has already begun investigation as SD equipment man was hiding illegal sticky substance and giving to players. Line judge saw it and had it confiscated and sent to broncos and league

You have to guess that the substance was confiscated during halftime. At least that’s what all the butterfingers on the Chargers should be saying.

Glazer is reporting that the Chargers are facing “very stiff sanctions” that could include hefty fines and a potential loss of draft picks. The Chargers equipment man was passing around towels with the substance during timeouts.
