The Green Bay Packers are looking at a potential disaster.
The National Football League has been asking for a long time to interview the players who were linked to performance enhancing drugs in an Al Jazeera report, and now they intend to apply enough pressure to guarantee they will get those interviews.
According to a report from Tom Pelissero of USA Today Sportsof USA Today Sports, the NFL has threatened the four players who are currently still on NFL rosters with suspensions, and unfortunately for the Packers they currently have two of them. It's not a short-term suspension either according to Pelissero both Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers could be suspended indefinitely as long as they refuse to give the interviews.
The suspension for each such player will begin on Friday, August 26 and will continue until he has fully participated in an interview with league investigators, after which the Commissioner will determine whether and when the suspension should be lifted.
The NFLPA will almost certainly have something to say about this so how exactly this will impact their seasons is as of this moment still unclear.
