Earlier this week, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell responded to a letter he and NFL Players Association chief DeMaurice Smith received from two congressmen calling for the NFL to adopt a “thorough testing program for HGH.”

Goodell said in his reply dated June 13 that testing for HGH “is a critical element of an effective and credible drug testing program” and the league is insisting on “immediate implementation of HGH testing” in negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement.

The NFL and NFLPA also discussed the policy before the union decertified March 11 and league owners imposed a lockout March 12.
