Lurie's statement on Garrett Reid findings

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie released this statement after a prosecutor in Easton said that an investigation found anabolic steroids in the Lehigh University dorm room of Garrett Reid at the time of Reid's death last August.

Reid, the son of Eagles coach Andy Reid, was assisting the Eagles at training camp.


“The news today on Garrett Reid’s possession of steroids is disappointing. It’s clear the conduct in which he apparently engaged runs counter to the values and principles mandated for everyone associated with our organization. We have spoken with the league office and have pledged our full cooperation with their requests should there be any. While we remained saddened by the tragic end of a young man’s life and know how hard this must be for the entire Reid family, we are extremely confident that Garrett’s actions were unknown to those around him and did not involve our football team.

“The NFL has a rigorous drug testing program for its players. It is a matter of record that none of our players has tested positive for any of the steroids mentioned in the district attorney’s report.”
