A 2015 report in Al Jazeera accused Peyton Manning of using performance enhancing drugs. The report also implicated Washington Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman, Philadelphia Phillies slugger Ryan Howard, and Green Pay linebacker Clay Matthews among others.
On Monday, the NFL announced it had found “no credible evidence that Peyton Manning was provided with or used HGH.” The NFL began their investigation 7 months ago, and reported that Manning fully complied.
The allegations were initially made by Charlie Sly, an Indiana pharmacist. Shortly after making the allegation against Manning, Sly redacted the claims shortly thereafter.
The NFL released the following statement, reported by the Huffington Post.
