NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — New Orleans Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata took to social media to announce that he tested positive for a banned substance.

According to the post, Onyemata says he will miss part of the 2021 NFL season while suspended. “As I have never knowingly taken anything that could cause a positive test, we are currently in the process of testing the supplements I was taking at the time of the test,” Onyemata wrote online.

Onyemata was drafted by the Saints as a 4th round pick in 2016.
