Former San Diego State and NFL running back Obafemi “Femi” Ayanbadejo has filed suit against Nevada sports supplement company ALR Industries claiming he tested positive for steroids last year because he took a supplement made by ALR.

The positive test result led to a four-game suspension and his release by the Arizona Cardinals and Chicago Bears. Ayanbadejo also alleges that the stigma of testing positive in January 2007 has helped keep him from getting back in the league.
