Report: NFL to clear Matthews & Peppers in PED probe

Green Bay, WI - -

The NFL found no new evidence in of PED use by Packers linebackers Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers and plans to clear them of any wrongdoing, according to ESPN.

Matthews and Peppers met with league investigators Wednesday as a part of the NFL's ongoing PED probe, stemming from a report by Al Jazeera in December of 2015.

The players expect the NFL to make an official statement before the start of the regular season.

This comes as little surprise, as former Colts and Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was cleared after he submitted to an NFL interview in the spring.

According to the ESPN report, Major League Baseball players Ryan Howard and Ryan Zimmerman - who also were named in the Al Jazeera documentary - were publicly cleared by MLB last week after it concluded its investigation. Overall, there has been no physical evidence that any of the players named by Al Jazeera source Charlie Sly were actually involved with PEDs.
