It’s the latest embarrassing incident for a team that was featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” this summer and declared itself a true Super Bowl contender. They were investigated by the NFL last week for their treatment of a female reporter at a recent practice. Commissioner Roger Goodell ruled that the Jets’ conduct was unprofessional but there was no sexual harassment, and Johnson apologized to TV Azteca reporter Ines Sainz.
The league also said it would implement a training program _ underwritten by Johnson _ for all 32 teams on proper conduct in the workplace.
“They’re really two separate issues and we’re really disappointed at what happened yesterday with Braylon,” Tannenbaum said. “We’re going to hold him accountable for what happened. As for last week, it’s something we can all learn from and we’re looking forward to working with the league in creating an educational and awareness program.”
