    Romo admits to steroid use

    NEW YORK -- Bill Romanowski used steroids and human growth hormone supplied by Victor Conte, the former NFL linebacker tells CBS' "60 Minutes" in an interview to be broadcast Sunday.

    Romanowski said he took illegal steroids for a two-year period starting in 2001 and got them from Conte, the former head of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, which has been at the center of a steroids controversy in several sports.

    "I took [human growth hormone] for a brief period and ... I definitely didn't receive what I got out of THG," Romanowski said, referring to another drug he got from Conte.

    In November 2003, the NFL notified Romanowski that he tested positive for the steroid THG.

    Romanowski played linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders in a 16-year career that ended in 2003.

    Last May, he agreed to pay former Raiders teammate Marcus Williams $415,000 in damages for after punching him during a practice drill in 2003. Romanowski retired that year, having played in the Raiders 48-21 Super Bowl loss to Tampa Bay in January 2003.

    Williams' career ended after his eye socket was broken by Romanowski, who ripped off Williams' helmet and hit him in the face.

    Williams, who entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2002, played in 13 games as a rookie during Oakland's Super Bowl season. He was used primarily on special teams but was trying to earn a regular position during his sophomore season before he was injured.

    The Raiders have claimed they are not responsible for any damages, and fined Romanowski $60,000. Romanowski was not charged with a crime.

    Romanowski writes about his NFL career in a soon-to-be-released book, "Romo, My Life on the Edge."

    Personally, I liked him as a player.

    When he spit it JJ Stokes face...another example of how the media takes something and puts their spin on it!

    He is on 60 Min now. I like this guy call him what you may but he played hard and maybe our linebackers could take some cues from him.
