As James Harrison himself predicted, the NFL has found “no credible evidence” that he, Clay Matthews, and Julius Peppers used PEDs as reported by Al-Jazeera America earlier this year.
All of the players were interviewed last week at their respective teams’ facilities, and the NFL did not bring any new evidence or allegations to the table, according to ESPN.
An NFL statement said the investigation, which started in January, “involved witness interviews, a review of relevant records and other materials, electronic research, and laboratory analysis and review.”
Free agent linebacker Mike Neal is still being investigated by the league with relation to the report and has yet to be interviewed. ESPN reported that Neal’s investigation is ongoing because of a connection to Charlie Sly, who was the pharmacist at the center of the report in question.
In conjunction with this investigation, the NFL also interviewed the recently retired Peyton Manning, and cleared his name last month. Ryan Howard and Ryan Zimmerman were also implicated in the story, but MLB cleared both of their names respectively when they closed their investigation earlier this month as well.
