LB Harrison: NFL must come to me for PED chat

James Harrison says he is willing to meet with NFL investigators to discuss being linked to performance-enhancing drugs in an Al-Jazeera America report, but the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker has a few stipulations for the interview.

Harrison wrote in an Instagram post late Sunday that the meeting must take place at his house before training camp begins and that commissioner Roger Goodell must attend the interview.

@NFL I look forward to speaking with you. Goodnight

Harrison also posted a copy of the NFL’s letter scheduling his interview for July 28, the day before the Steelers open camp in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.

The Al-Jazeera report in December claimed that Harrison was among several players to receive shipments of a new performance-enhancing drug called Delta-2 from a man identified as a pharmacist.

Harrison denied the allegations. The man, Charlie Sly, has since recanted his involvement in the report, which also implicated Peyton Manning as a recipient of HGH.

The NFL has also requested interviews with Green Bay Packers linebackers Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews and free agent Mike Neal, according to a letter obtained by ESPN.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
