Football News

We may still be in the off-season for the NFL, but it has still seen the league have to make a monumental move in order to react to one of the most headline grabbing news stories of 2015.

In December last year, Al-Jazeera reported that several NFL players were guilty of using performance enhancing drugs.

Better late than never

The NFL is finally reacting to the December report after a strong lack of co-operation from the NFL Players Association.

Now the league is set to interview five players in relation to the report with them ranging from active players, one free agent and one legendary retired quarterback.

Green Bay Packers' stars Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison and former Packers star Mike Neal will all be interviewed by the NFL.

The interviews will take place during July but one more legendary name has been included and it is that of former Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.

League spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed that they will be talking with the Super Bowl champion star Manning.

Conducting the interviews in response to the Al-Jazeera documentary, the league believes that it:

"Raised serious issues concerning their possible violation of the NFL/NFLPA Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances." - NFL's reasons for investigating players

With the future Hall of Famers name possibly about to be dragged through the mud, the NFL could be left feeling foolish if it is all proven to be wrong.

Tough times ahead in Denver?

The 2016 season could be very tough for the Denver Broncos who after losing Manning, still face a lot of questions at quarterback.

With Mark Sanchez and rookie Paxton Lynch about to lead Denver into the post- Super Bowl era, the Broncos fans have a lot of questions yet to be answered.
