NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will have more than the 144-page Wells Report to digest when determining how to make NFL workplaces safe places.
He’ll have the opinions of plenty of those in the workplace.
According to Peter King of Sports Illustrated, Goodell has met with more than 30 players to get input on how to proceed in the wake of the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin situation.
One of those players was Eagles veteran wideout Jason Avant, who told Goodell: “Commissioner,’we need you to set standards. We need you to make it black and white. We need standards, and if we don’t meet them, we shouldn’t be here.”
Other league officials including vice president of player engagement Troy Vincent and human resources executive Robert Gulliver have also been in on the meetings.
More meetings will be held in early March, and when the owners meeting March 24-28 in Orlando, they will discuss new workplace policies.
But for now, they’re casting a wide net for recommendations, before changes that would and should include a code of conduct for employees.
