The NFL apparently doesn't think much of Al-Jazeera's reporting, as the league announced today that it found no credible evidence that Pittsburgh’s James Harrison, and Green Bay’s Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers were provided with or used substances prohibited under the NFL-NFLPA Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances.
The NFL issued its statement following an investigation into allegations made in a documentary by Al-Jazeera America. The three players participated in interviews last week at their team facilities
The NFL also cleared retired quarterback Peyton Manning of similar reports from Al-Jazeera.
According to the NFL, the investigation began in January and was led by the NFL’s security and legal teams with support from expert consultants and other professionals. The investigation involved witness interviews, a review of relevant records and other materials, electronic research, and laboratory analysis and review.
One player, Mike Neal, has yet to be cleared by the NFL.
