Goodell Says Public Will See Proof of Bounties Saints Players Had

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell indicated Tuesday at the Spring League Meeting that the NFL plans to release proof to the public which proves bounties were paid by the New Orleans Saints players according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com..

“Yes, I do,” Goodell said when he was asked if he expected the public to see the proof. Eventually.

Goodell said the league won’t release any more information publicly until the appeals and grievance processes are finished. Goodell also said that the NFLPA “expressly told the players not to cooperate in the bounty investigation.

“I invited them in and they decided not to do that,” Goodell said.

The appeals and grievance process will take more time. In the meantime, Goodell knows he will continue to be a target for criticism from players.

“You don’t worry about a popularity contest. You can’t. You can’t make everyone happy on this,” Goodell said.
