Foxworth says mistrust between NFLPA, NFL an impediment to HGH agreement
Wednesday’s edition of PFT Live: Vagabond Week included a chance meeting with NFLPA president Domonique Foxworth, which led to an unscheduled special segment of the show.
Foxworth, who will be entering Harvard Business School later this year, addressed a wide variety of topics.
As to one of the most pressing -- when and if HGH testing will be implemented in the NFL -- Foxworth said that he met last Friday with Commissioner Roger Goodell, and that a deal is close. But Foxworth pointed out that lingering mistrust between the union and the league is an impediment, and that he’s not sure what can be done to erase that.
Foxworth also talked about his own struggles with an ACL injury, which are overlooked now that everyone presumes based on Adrian Peterson’s experience that every player who tears that ligament will come back better than ever. Any Redskins fans in the audience would be wise to listen closely to what Foxworth had to say.
