SHERMAN, Tex. -- A personal trainer who says he has ties to the Dallas Cowboys and the Atlanta Falcons was in federal court in Sherman this morning facing steroid charges. Jacobs agreed to a plea deal after he helped the government break up one of the largest illegal steroid operations in U.S. history.

Some of the people said to be connected with the operation include NFL players on the Dallas Cowboys and Atlanta Falcons, and Dallas SWAT and police officers.

David Jacobs is said to have plead guilty to charges of manufacturing and distributing 40,000 units of steroids and thousands of units of human growth hormone.

He goes on to say he will tell federal investigators about professional athletes who use steroids but refused to name teams or details.

A spokesperson for the Cowboys claims Jacobs never worked for them and is unaware of the charges he faces.

The Atlanta Falcons claim he didn't work for them either and had never heard of him.

Jacobs is a Plano-based personal trainer where he owned and operated a supplement store.

His sentence will be determined within the next three months

    Now here's a story that will concern your Miller Lite. The price of beer is going to go up due to a shortage of hops. With the price of gas and all, no one can afford to drink and drive anymore! Right at Holiday time too!

    Ya know... I've never heard of Millerton either. (must be next to Bugtussle). I HAVE heard of Miller Lite. Now there's a story.."This just in... 400 lb Gorilla drinks truck load of Miller Lite. More a 5:00. (just my opinion, I could be wrong)

    I agree that this is a non-story...what's new...a Jock on steroids? The Millerton, OK voters approved a sales tax!!! Yippee, I guess, I've never heard of Millerton, sorry. I am glad KXII will let people post comments. I think they should have an open forum for useful advice such as...did you know it makes the Salvation Army ELATED if you even donate your empty Wal-Mart sacks? Goodwill would probably take them in as well, who knows?

    Sounds like he's trying to cop a plea deal by implicating the Cowboys and Falcons for leniency. This is a NON story. Who cares!!!
