The Chargers could face NFL discipline after it allegedly used Stickum, or a similar banned adhesive, to gain a competitive advantage during at least one game, according to an ongoing league investigation.

"We are looking into it," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello wrote in a Sunday email.

At the team's Oct. 15 game against the Broncos, line judge Jeff Bergman confiscated a sticky substance from a member of the Chargers equipment staff, Aiello confirmed. The substance has been sent to both the Broncos and league office for review.

The details were first reported by Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

Potential discipline includes a fine with the possible loss of one or more draft picks.

Stickum is an adhesive, applicable to an athlete's hands, designed to improve grip. Mueller Sports Medicine sells the product in powder, wax-based paste and aerosol spray forms. It and substances like it were outlawed by the NFL in 1981 with the "Lester Hayes Rule," named after the former Raiders cornerback who was a prominent user at the time.

heard that Goodell is having problems proving Chargers' receivers used stickum because Rivers only threw passes to defenders
