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.”
