Drew Brees: Roger Goodell 'little to no credibility' with NFL players, league owes NFLPA apology

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees lambasted NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday, a day after former commish Paul Tagliabue issued a 22-page report that effectively absolved Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove of previous sanctions that had been placed on them by the league.

Despite the report, the damage to the Saints, and to a larger degree, the NFL, has already been done. A number of members from the Saints coaching staff have served suspensions and the team was also fined and forced to surrender two second-round draft picks.

Brees wants the league to apologize to the players in an effort to repair the lack of credibility Goodell now has with his players, according to a report today from The Times-Picayune.

Brees said he wants the league to be held accountable and that Goodell has "little to no credibility" with NFL players right now.
