Lions' Kevin Ogletree: Goodell should get 'a couple game suspension'
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kevin Ogletree said that he thinks NFL commissioner Roger Goodell should get "a couple game suspension" for the way he handled the Ray Rice investigation, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.
Goodell and the NFL have maintained that they did not see video of Rice punching his then-fiancée, now-wife Janay Palmer in an Atlantic City casino on Feb. 15 until TMZ.com released the video on Monday.
On Wednesday, the Associated Press reported that a law enforcement official said he sent a copy of the video to an NFL executive in April. The AP said it listened to a voicemail confirming an NFL office received it.
"We assumed that there was a video," Goodell told CBS on Tuesday. "We asked for anything that's pertinent. But we were never granted that opportunity."
Goodell has come under fire from several former and current NFL players who have reacted to the situation on Twitter.
Rice was originally suspended for two games by Goodell, a decision that was criticized by players and media. After the video was released on Monday, the NFL indefinitely suspended Rice and the Baltimore Ravens released him.
