LSU offensive coordinator comes to Mettenberger's defense
BATON ROUGE - LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron came to former LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger's defense Wednesday, after the former Tiger QB had his drug tests leaked to the public revealing too much water in his urine sample.
"I'm pretty worked up about that," Cameron told reporters at the Tiger Athletics Foundation event. "He's our guy, one of the best quarterbacks to ever play here, and he's got mine and Les' and our program's backing 100-percent."
As for why Cameron believes this information was leaked?
"This [timing] just goes to show what the motivation was," said the offensive coordinator. "It was either a selfish motivation individually or it was a message sent by somebody who wanted their quarterback taken before him."
The former NFL coordinator, however, believes this information was made available to NFL teams 'about 30 days ago' won't hurt Mettenberger's draft stock with the teams who were pursuing him.
"The guys who wanted that type of quarterback and had done their homework...and to the teams that know, it's a non-issue," said Cameron. "The ones who didn't do their homework are scrambling now to clairfy some things."
