Johnson, Clemson defensive end Gaines Adams and Louisville defensive tackle Amobi Okoye admitted using the drug. The players admitted using during college at February's NFL scouting combine.
"I doubt it will have any effect whatsoever," said Gailey, a former Dallas Cowboys head coach. "I think he's a great young man who probably did it one time to see what it was like and told the truth."
The Gridiron Gateway.com reports according to a player personnel director from another team, players are encouraged to be totally forthcoming on even the most minor events as they approach jobs worth millions of dollars. As long as the players do not use in the NFL they will have no problems.
