"Mitchell Report" for NFL shows history of drug use

Using media reports, archives, public records and interviews with players and personnel, Brent Schrotenboer of the San Diego Union-Tribune compiled a "Mitchell Report" for the NFL. The list identifies 185 players linked to abuse of performance-enhancing drugs dating back to 1962. "There are no bombshell names unveiled for the first time, nor is it considered comprehensive or proportional, just the best snapshot that could be provided through those sources. It is believed to only scratch the surface of actual usage in pro football during that time, according to doping experts."
