NFL Fall Owners Meeting Notes

 

Roger Goodell addressed reporters Wednesday after the NFL owners conducted their fall meeting in New York.

Below are the primary issues addressed by the Commissioner:

  • The sale of the Bills to the Pegula family was unanimously approved.
  • There are “reasons for optimism” regarding the potential relocation of one or more teams to Los Angeles.
  • The Commissioner elected not to comment on whether or not he has spoken with Robert Mueller, who is heading the investigation into the league’s handling of the Ray Rice situation.
  • The exempt list will continue to be available to team’s until a new policy is implemented.
  • There were “strong opinions” on whether or not an intermediate step is required where the league decides on whether or not to let a player play, versus whether to let the legal process unfold.
  • The Commissioner said he was very honest with the owners about the mistakes he has made.
  • Despite the reasons for optimism, the Commissioner would not make any projections about relocation to Los Angeles, but that the league is investigating options for a long-term facility.
