The NFL has not forgotten about an Al Jazeera report during the 2015 season that linked several players to PED use. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the NFL is still planning on interviewing Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers, and James Harrison.

There is some good news for Matthews, Peppers, and Harrison. They were implicated in the same report that had linked Peyton Manning to HGH use. After interviewing him, the NFL cleared Manning. That will certainly help to weaken the validity of the report that named them.
Harrison had previously released his own statement on the interview with this own list of demands.
No word on whether the NFL is planning on honoring any of Harrison’s requests or not.
