Former University of Oklahoman and Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Tony Casillas had one thought when he heard about athletes allegedly using deer antler spray.


"I said that’s nothing," Casillas said Wednesday on the Elf and Slater show in KRLD-FM (105.3) in Dallas.
"We used to use this stuff called DMSO. That’s what veterinarians put on horses’ muscles and we used it in the locker room. We had a bottle and you’d take it. It goes right to the blood stream. I’m not sure about this deer antler stuff, but it was prevalent in our locker room.
"It’s called DMSO. You get it from the veterinarian. It’s an ointment that’s like anti-inflammatory. You put it on your skin and you put it on a muscle, and I guarantee you, in about 30 minutes you’d feel great. If you’re going to talk about the deer antler stuff, we used DMSO and people knew it. Everyone knew about it.”
