    NFL Players would welcome full HGH testing if....

    They got fully guaranteed contracts.

    Like? Dislike? Would it happen?

    They might even stop smoking weed if they get all the guaranteed money the day they sign the contract....

    LOL What a joke. I hope you would be okay with drug testing if you were getting guaranteed million dollar contracts.

    It would mean smaller and shorter contracts to the players. Especially the ones at the bottom.

    I wouldn't mind smaller contracts up to a certain amount of money being fully guaranteed in a way that doesn't count against the cap if they were to be released.

    lol..."we'd support more strict testing if we were fully guaranteed our contracts so that we can continue to be paid if/when we break the rules."

    According to me, If the NFL really does care about player safety they will ban HGH.

    I believe it is banned, the NFLPA will not allow the testing.
    HGH testing was part of the 2011 collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and its players. But HGH testing has not been implemented because the NFLPA wants commissioner Roger Goodell to surrender his authority over player discipline appeals.

    Kind of confused by that quote^^ as well. If its in the CBA, isn't the NFLPA in blatant breach of it by not having it done?

    As I recall, the new CBA said that the methods, timing and details of the HGH testing were left to be worked out between the league and the union. They are still "being worked out" and will be until the union gets other desired concessions.

    Why do you believe this? I don't know much about HGH but from what I understand there are a lot of benefits to allowing players to use it especially for a player's health and safety.

    Has the NFL made a rule that makes it mandatory for offensive players to use HGH while defensive players receive a fine?

    That's all fully guaranteed contracts would be.. Instead of 7 years 96 million with 40 million guaranteed, Peterson gets a 3 year, 40 mil guaranteed deal.

    Same money would go to players, 48% or whatever of total revenue. So either way Team x has 133 million to spend on it's players. Granted if they are still paying Ladainian Tomlinson 10 mil a year on his contract since they guaranteed it, it means that's 10 mil less for current players to make. That's the only difference, guaranteed contracts would mean more of the cap would be spent on players no longer in the league.

    That's not at all what I meant. I literally meant smaller contracts like 2 years 2.6m for a role player who hasn't made a lot of money and won't make a lot in his career. If the player did something stupid like get caught smoking weed or doing PEDs and were released then I would be ok with the money not being guaranteed besides not touching the cap.
