Sports Illustrated's B.J. Raji Mea Culpa

All together now ... "our bad yo!" Here is the official retraction from Sports Illustrated on BJ Raji's alleged failed drug test:

An report posted earlier this month incorrectly stated that Boston College defensive tackle B.J. Raji's name would appear on the NFL's list of players who tested positive for drugs at the NFL Scouting Combine in February. We regret the error.

That's it? Some bootleg apology if you ask me. That is like the G2 of apologies - watered-down, 1/2 the calories, 1/2 the sincerity. SI held one young man's future hostage for a few weeks and all they can muster is "We regret the error." Weak.

At least this was all cleared up before the draft and Raji can enjoy his big day on Saturday.

But is he a Top 5 pick? More on that topic tomorrow.
