    The steroid that a lawyer for San Diego Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman said was found in Merriman's urine cannot be legally obtained in the United States.

    The lawyer, David Cornwell, said the steroid nandrolone ended up in Merriman's system from a tainted supplement. But under National Football League rules, players are responsible for positive tests regardless of the products they take.</blockquote>
