(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.
The Times, citing its sources, reports that Armstrong would do 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."
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.
