NFL Clears Peyton Manning of Allegations He Used HGH
This morning, the NFL announced in a statement that they "found no credible evidence that Peyton Manning was provided with or used HGH or other substances prohibited by the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances," after a seven-month investigation which included witness interviews, a review of relevant records and other materials, online research, and laboratory analysis and review. The NFL also stated that Manning was "fully cooperative."
Al Jazeera America, which boasts to be an unbiased, fact-based news outlet, released a documentary that claimed that Manning received human growth hormone from Guyer Institute, via his wife, Ashley Manning. Statements were later recanted.
The NFLPA issued the following statement:
"As a former player, Peyton Manning is free to do whatever he believes is in his best interest. The Union knows that he understands the rights of players under the Collective Bargaining Agreement and would never do anything to hurt or undermine active players in support of those rights."
Good news for Colts, Broncos and most-of-all Peyton Manning fans everywhere!
