Sam Montgomery passes drug test, days after Texans release him for allegedly smoking marijuana


Sam Montgomery’s release from the Houston Texans may not have been due to marijuana use, as has been reported by ESPN.com. The former LSU Tigers star was among three rookies released by Houston for a team violation prior to the game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Following his release, Montgomery voluntarily submitted to an independent drug test in order to provide further proof and evidence that he was not using illegal drugs.  The results of those tests came back negative, confirming his statement that he was not using marijuana or illegal substances.

FanSided.com obtained the test results for Montgomery, born Sidney Sammual Montgomery, which you can see below:

According to his agent, Jeff Guerriero, Montgomery already has several teams expressing interest in him and has team visits scheduled beginning tomorrow.

Montgomery hopes to put this matter behind him and to be signed by a team where he can get on the field and make an immediate impact.

Guerriero , released the following statement earlier today:

“It is our position that the story written about Sam Montgomery by ESPN, which sets forth that he was dismissed from the Houston Texans for using marijuana, is completely inaccurate.  Mr. Montgomery was dismissed from the team for allegedly violating a team rule. This can be confirmed by the Houston Texan personnel.”

    Civil lawsuit for slander should be filed. Plus this is a sign for the Texans owner to clean house similar to the Chiefs.

    • Justin Schultz

      Wait, why should the Texans clean house? They released him for violating a team rule. They never said it was because of drug use. Yes, Kubiak should be fired but for many other reasons not including this one.

      • Norman Gunn

        When the Texans are 3-13 I’ll track you down to see what is your opinion about the Texans cleaning house..

        • Justin Schultz

          I’m a die-hard Texans fan. I’m just saying that cleaning house because a player broke a team rule is ridiculous.

            I think the question here is who leaked to ESPN that it was because of weed?

          • joshsanchez

            Yeah, ESPN was the outlet that initially reported it was because of weed. Texans just said it was team rules.

    A Piss test is a joke. So easy to pass. Lets see the results of a hair test before we believe this idiot slacker, who has a history of pot use. This also explains why he into camp overweight and remains overweight.

      Don’t hair tests go back 7 years. Don’t you think that’s a little extreme for smoking pot?

      • DAVE

        Your hair is like a timeline for drug usage. The longer your hair is the longer they can go back. .1/2 inch of hair equals roughly one month. For work mine went back 3 months using 1.5 inches of the hair on my head. No way he would pass IMO
