NFL Reportedly Proposes New HGH Testing to Players Union

May 25, 2013   ·     ·   Jump to comments

The NFL is determined to require players to submit to human-growth-hormone testing during the 2013 season and onward, and talks between the league and the NFL Players Association are reportedly heating up. 
According to NFL.com's Albert Breer, the NFL delivered a new proposal to the Players Union on April 24. In that report, the league apparently relaxed its standards on game-day testing to try to appease the needs of the players. Avoiding game-day testing had been a big hang-up during previous negotiations. 
Here's an excerpt from Breer's piece:
One union source said the issue now is that the league's proposal calls for testing to begin immediately. The samples would then be tested, and results would be stored, until the World Anti-Doping Agency comes up with the baseline standard for acceptable levels. The union, per the source, would rather wait to start drawing blood and testing until the baseline is determined and full testing is ready to be implemented.
