PALM BEACH, Fla. | NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday left open the possibility that other teams besides the New Orleans Saints - perhaps the Redskins - still could be subject to penalties related to bounty programs.
Goodell, speaking at a news conference at the NFL’s annual meetings here, said the NFL’s investigation of bounties remains ongoing.
Former Redskins defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who is suspended indefinitely for the bounty program he ran in New Orleans, offered Redskins players illegal non-contract bonus payments during his time in Washington, former Redskins safety Matt Bowen recently wrote in the Chicago Tribune.
“Because of the time frame and because of the meetings, we have not met with people we will meet with as soon as these meetings are over,” Goodell said. “We’ll continue. We have not said everybody has a free pass here. We’re saying that we’re going to continue to pursue the information that we get that is credible.”
