Todd Steussie was a key link to the Panthers' improbable Super Bowl run two years ago. Two years later, he's been engulfed in the latest sports/steroids controversy.
On tonight's episode of "60 Minutes Wednesday," the news magazine investigates a South Carolina doctor under federal investigation for giving pro athletes steroids and among the names being identified was Steussie. The show claims that Steussie got a prescription for a steroid cream within two weeks of the Panthers Super Bowl appearance.
While no charges have been officially filed against Steussie or the other Panther players named, it could be the catalyst for an NFL whistleblower to do to football what Jose Canseco has done for baseball and its steroid problems.
* The Vikings made it official Wednesday when the team announced it has re-signed center Cory Withrow. The terms of the deal are one-year for $540,000. Withrow, who has spent his entire career with the Vikings, was released last month because his contract called for him to receive $990,000 in 2005, which the Vikings deemed too steep a price.
