On Tuesday, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison let it be known that he’s still yet to decide whether or not he’ll play in 2016 even though his agent reportedly said that his client would honor the final year of his contract. On Wednesday, Harrison was randomly tested by the league for PEDS, according to his Instagram account.
Harrison, who will turn 38 in May, was one of several top athletes allegedly tied to illegal HGH use in a story in The Huffington Post after they had viewed an advance copy of the documentary, “The Dark Side,” produced by Al Jazeera.
“It’s disappointing because now, all the work I’ve put in, ya’ll are going to say, you know what (maybe he uses),” Harrison said after that report was released, via ESPN. “But the ones that know me, they know.
“You have to check your facts before you write something like that. Just because somebody says it doesn’t mean it’s true. Now I have to fight it because I look like I could be (doing it).”
You have to admit that the timing of this test certainly is curious.
