On Friday, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith complained in an interview that was the equivalent of a press release that the league has shared scant information regarding the Saints bounty investigation. Coincidentally (or otherwise), the NFL is now willing to divulge more details.
Steve Wyche of NFL Network reports that the league has offered to provide more facts to the NFLPA, beyond two confidential reports that previously were shared with the players association.
Specifically, NFL Security would discuss with the NFLPA interviews conducted and information gathered, as early as next week. Also, the league reportedly has told the union that the parties can meet at league headquarters any time to discuss the case.
Here’s hoping that the league will provide the information with no strings attached. Otherwise, another $46 million in cap penalties could end up being imposed against the Cowboys and Redskins.
