While it’s probably too soon to claim progress, considering the two sides haven’t agreed on much to date, there is at least some movement between the NFL and the NFLPA on HGH testing.
According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the league submitted a new proposal in April which will keep alive the hope for player testing in 2013.
The proposal reportedly did not include game-day testing, which was part of previous NFL suggestions.
Union officials relayed the news to player representatives this week on a conference call, and they’re working on a counter-proposal which could be in the league’s hands in the next week.
Considering the contentious nature of previous talks, it’s probably wise to take this one with a grain of salt.
