Eagles RT Lane Johnson, who is still waiting to hear whether he’ll be forced to serve a 10-game suspension for a second violation of the league’s PED policy, explained that his appeal hearing was really just “eight hours of bickering.”

“It was eight hours of bickering back and forth and discussing league policy,” Johnson said, via Reuben Frank of “It just felt good going in there and taking it head on. It was mainly just a conversation on the policy [the NFL has] in place. It didn’t have to do with any substances, mainly just changing the testing procedures.”

Johnson added that they did their best to simply lay out their case for the arbitrator.

“We put it all on the floor,” Johnson said. “We didn’t have anything to hide. I feel like we did all we could. There wasn’t a stone left unturned.

“Man, the thing was, just face it head on. We weren’t going to be intimidated by the NFL.
