Steelers LB James Harrison said he is willing to be suspended in response to the NFL’s request of a mandatory interview about him possibly accepting performance-enhancing drugs.
“I’ll do what I have to do,” Harrison said, via Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. “They’ll do what they have to do. We’ll make that decision when that time comes. . . . I just am doing what I’m advised to do [by the NFLPA]. It’s the right thing to do.”
Harrisson recognizes that forcing players to give evidence to unverified allegations could provide a negative precedent for future events.
“Somebody could come out and say James Harrison is a pedophile,” Harrison said. “They are going to suspend me, put me under investigation for being a pedophile just because somebody said it? I’m not going to answer questions for every little thing some Tom, Dick and Harry comes up with.”
