Breaking News: Former Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has been cleared of any use of PED’s, according to Adam Schefter.
We all had a pretty good idea that it was not the case, but I know that I am relieved that Peyton Manning’s name has been cleared of any use of performance enhancing drugs.
After a seven month investigation, the NFL has determined that Peyton Manning did no wrong doing when it comes to performance enhancing drugs. This was reported by Adam Schefter.
Manning was first accused of use of performance-enhancing drugs back when the Al-Jazeera report came out accusing the future Hall of Fame quarterback that he was taking Human Growth Hormones. It got so bad that they said that Manning used his wife’s name as the shipping name.
I had no doubt in my mind that Peyton Manning was not using those substances. He is a class act and no one would ever think that he would go down to that level.

In fact, the only time that I can remember that he got in trouble with the NFL was a fine for taunting a Houston Texans defensive back during a preseason game back in 2014.
The best thing about this is that is name has finally been cleared. Schefter also noted that the investigation with the other players is still going on, so this will not be the last time we hear about the investigation. But for Broncos fans, the fact that Peyton Manning’s name is no longer on that list is a huge weight lifted off the shoulders of a man that was innocent to begin with.
Now Peyton Manning can live life after retirement and not be asked if his legacy is tarnished due to drug usage. We all know that Manning’s name would be cleared. The sports world would have been shocked if it was true. But we all knew that was not the kind of player that Peyton Manning is.
Now, enjoy your retirement Peyton Manning. Can’t wait to see you in September for the regular season opener against the Carolina Panthers.
