Bucs_Josh_Freeman_2013 [1]TAMPA, Fla. — NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith said Tuesday the union is looking to investigate how Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman’s presence in Stage 1 of the league’s substance-abuse program became public.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen first reported the news Monday night. Freeman later released a statement in which he said he has a prescription for Adderall to treat ADHD; however, last year he inadvertently took Ritalin, which triggered a positive test. As a result of the positive test, he submitted to frequent drug screenings, leading to his placement in Stage 1 of the league’s drug program.
