In Memo, Union Tells NFL Players HGH Testing Close

The NFL Players Association has told its members that the union “tentatively agreed” that 40 players will take blood tests for HGH each week during the season, with a positive result drawing a four-game suspension.

The NFLPA emailed players a memo in question-and-answer format Tuesday. The Associated Press obtained a copy.

According to the email, players participating in NFL training camps this year will provide a blood sample for a “population study” to determine what level of HGH will result in penalties.

While Tuesday’s memo says owners and players “will likely finalize soon” the in-season weekly HGH testing, the union does not indicate what the NFL has agreed to — or give specifics about what stands in the way.

A league spokesman declined to comment on the union’s memo.
