Wes Welker denies taking Molly, wonders if someone slipped something in his drink

Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker is denying that he took Molly, a common term for pure MDMA, at the Kentucky Derby, saying in an email to The Denver Post that he has no idea what could have triggered the positive drug test that resulted in his suspension under the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy.

Welker tested positive for an amphetamine, but per the league's obscure drug policy, the exact substance won't be made public. However, a source told the Post the substance was Adderall, and Welker flatly refuted a separate report that his tests turned up MDMA "cut with amphetamines" he allegedly took while partying at the Kentucky Derby.

Welker wasn't sure what exactly flagged his positive test but he was incensed at a report he took a Molly at the Kentucky Derby. He does wonder if someone put something in his drink at the Derby.

"I wouldn't have any idea where to get a Molly or what a Molly is," he said. "That's a joke. I don't do marijuana, I don't do drugs. I don't do any drugs." [Denver Post]

Welker, you may remember, was spotted glibly handing out $100 bills after winning big at the race. --Jon Terbush
