The NFL has determined there was no “credible evidence” in the case of Peyton Manning on HGH use, after Al-Jazeera America reported it several months ago.
No Proof of Peyton Manning on HGH Use
There is no credible proof, according to the investigation. It included interviews to Peyton and Ashley Manning, and a review of the recordings made to Charles Sly regarding Manning’s wife receiving deliveries of HGH in 2011. The investigation also reviewed all medical records.
He was also cleared of any possible violation to the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.
Manning and his wife, Ashley, “were fully cooperative with the investigation and provided both interviews and access to all records sought by the investigators,” the league said in a statement.
“As a former player, Peyton Manning is free to do whatever he believes is in his best interest,” the NFL Players Association said in a statement. “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.”
Eventhough Manning is on the clear, apparently the investigation will continue with other NFL players. Green Bay Packers linebackers Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison and free agent linebacker Mike Neal have been requested for an interview with the NFL security and legal teams.
