Steelers linebacker James Harrison says that he is willing to go meet with the NFL about an Al-Jazeera report linking him to PEDs—with a few stipulations. 

The 38-year-old took to Instagram on Sunday to demand that the meeting take place at his house. He also requested that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell attend the meeting. 

Harrison also posted a copy of the NFL’s letter scheduling the interview, which will take place on July 28. The Steelers open training camp on the 29th in Latrobe, Pa.

Along with Harrison, the NFL has requested interviews with Green Bay Packers linebackers Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews and free agent Mike Neal.

Harrison has denied that he used PEDs. After Al-Jazeera published its report, which notably accused former Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning of PED use, the main source for the investigation claimed he fabricated the information he provided.
