Congress could ‘intervene’ on HGH testing in NFL
Atallah responded via his Twitter account, linking to a page on the NFLPA website that contained his reply: “The only case of buyer’s remorse is the attached letter that the NFL agreed to weeks ago. Our signature is on it. Sign it, like you agreed to, and we start drawing blood from players immediately. Your refusal to sign it confirms that the only thing you care about is power.”
Posted below his statement was what Atallah said was the signature page _ with Smith’s handwriting, but not Goodell’s _ from the sides’ agreement on how to carry out a population study. That would entail drawing blood from every player at training camp in 2013 to determine what level of HGH would constitute a failed test.
Team rosters must be reduced to the regular-season count of 53 by Aug. 31.
“The sooner they sign the population study letter, the sooner we can move forward,” Atallah told the AP. “But time is running out.”
