(USA Today) - The New York Times, citing sources with direct knowledge of the situation, reported late Friday night that Lance Armstrong has told associates and anti-doping officials that he is considering a public admission to using performance-enhancing drugs and blood transfusions during his cycling career.
Citing its sources, the newspaper reports that Armstrong is considering this in hopes of having his eligibility restored after receiving a lifetime ban from the United State Anti-Doping Agency last October. Armstrong's longtime lawyer, Tim Herman, had no knowledge of a possible admission.
"I do not know about that," Herman told the Times. "I suppose anything is possible, for sure. Right now, that's really not on the table."
The 41-year-old Armstrong, who had his seven Tour de France titles stripped to go along with the lifetime ban, has denied doping for more than a decade.
