The NFL has finished with their investigations on the alleged use of the illegal sticky substance in the Monday Night game against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 15.
However they were fined $20,000 for not providing the towels when asked and failing to cooperate with NFL officials.
Statement from the NFL on the investigation.
"Following a review of the San Diego Chargers use of towels that included an adhesive substance in an October 15 game against the Denver Broncos, the NFL has determined that the club did not violate a competitive rule by use of the towels.
However, NFL game officials are charged with protecting the integrity and competitive fairness of the games and club staff members, like players and coaches, have a clear obligation to cooperate in this effort and comply with the direction of game officials. As a result of the failure of club staff to follow the directive of a game official to immediately surrender the towels when directed to do so, and to attempt to conceal the towels, the Chargers have been fined $20,000."'

(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer Von Miller was such an athletic freak coming out of Texas A&M that his mentor, former Aggies coach Mike Sherman, joked he probably could have crumpled quarterbacks with one hand tied behind his back.

Cam Newton knows he can learn a thing or two from Peyton Manning, beginning with his ability to win close football games.
With his swagger back after outplaying one of the NFL's bright young quarterbacks last week in Robert Griffin III, Newton faces one of the all-time great signal-callers Sunday when the Panthers host Manning and the Denver Broncos.

Broncos LB Von Miller says he will forgo his customary "DeSoto Shuffle" celebration and do Cam Newton's "Superman" celebration if he sacks the Panthers QB on Sunday.
You remember former NFL tailback (read: bust) and USC star LenDale White, correct? White was drafted by Tennessee and also played for the Denver Broncos. He was reunited with Pete Carroll at the Seattle Seahawks, but failed a drug test and got suspended.
He was pretty excited about Colorado becoming the first state to legalize marijuana.

The linebacker sprawled out and barely got a hand on Trindon Holliday.
Not enough of a hand.
Eight seconds later, Holliday was gone. The NFL's shortest - and quite possibly fastest - player says he has never been caught from behind and it didn't come close to happening last Sunday, either. The 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against Cincinnati went down as the longest...
If you strictly look at records going into the matchup between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers in Week 10 of the NFL season, this looks like an incredible mismatch between a 5–3 record versus 2–6. As with many situations in football, however, the numbers don’t even begin to tell the story.Carolina has been one of the most snake bitten teams in the 2012 season, as...
The Denver Broncos have a pair of undrafted rookies making an impact, so why can't teams like the Patriots have the same success? One of the Broncos is actually a former Patriot.
