According to a report, a lack of new evidence against Green Bay Packers linebackers Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers in an NFL investigation about performance-enhancing substances means they expect to be cleared of any wrongdoing.
ESPN says that the NFL did not offer "any new evidence or allegations" during an interview the league conducted this week with Matthews and Peppers.
Matthews and Peppers are two of four players the NFL have interviewed or plan to interview this month after a report in December by now-defunct Al Jazeera America which implicated Matthews and Peppers, along with former Packers linebacker Mike Neal, about PED use or distribution.
The report alleges that Neal brought at least a dozen Packers players into his circle as part of distribution efforts.
