ESPN: Correll Buckhalter denies he was involved with an alleged
drug dealer who is on trial in Pennsylvania, according to his
agent. A suburban Philly prosecutor said Wednesday that an alleged
drug dealer told police he sold drugs to athletes including
Buckhalter, a RB who signed with the Denver Broncos last month
after 8 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. "First of all, this
news caught both Correll and me by surprise this morning," agent
J.R. Rickert told The AP. "When I found out, I talked to Correll,
who said to me there is absolutely no validity to the allegation
that was made. He did not purchase drugs from this individual or
speak to this individual on the phone." Buckhalter signed a 4-
year, $10 million contract with the Broncos last month. Delaware
County Deputy District Attorney Katayoun Copeland told a jury
Wednesday that 36-year-old Styles N. Beckles, of Clifton Heights,
Pa., told officers he provided drugs to Buckhalter, according to
The Philadelphia Inquirer, which is covering the trial. Neither
Buckhalter nor any other athletes have been charged.
