Congress wrote NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith requesting that the league adopt a "thorough testing program for HGH."

According to Barry Wilner of The Associated Press, Goodell responded to the letter on June 13, writing that HGH testing, "is a critical element of an effective and credible drug testing program." Goodell added that during current negotiations for a new labor deal, the league is insisting on "immediate implementation of HGH testing."

The league and players are working toward a new Collective Bargaining Agreement that would end the current lockout. The league believes that HGH testing should be an aspect of the new agreement.
