On this afternoon’s “NFL Live” on ESPN, former players Tedy Bruschi and Marcellus Wiley discussed HGH testing.
“It is the right thing to do,” said Bruschi, who won three Super Bowls in 13 seasons at linebacker for the New England Patriots. “It is HGH now, but later on down the road, it is going to be something else and proper blood testing is the only way that you are going to be able to detect these PEDs. You want to level the playing field.”
Wiley, who played 10 seasons at defensive end for four clubs, agreed.
“It may be invasive, but at the same time, I wouldn’t have a problem with it because it is my livelihood,” Wiley said. “Anytime there is a situation where I have to bite the bullet just do something to protect the integrity of the game, I am all for it.”
