The Washington Post reported Friday that NFL owners plan to discuss the possibility of changing Commissioner Roger Goodell’s role in the player disciplinary process.
The newspaper quoted several people familiar with the situation.
The talk about Goodell’s role comes a day after a U.S. District Court judge erased a four-game suspension given to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the wake of the Deflategate scandal.
According to the Post, Goodell said at an owners’ meeting last month that the owners want him to retain his power to hear appeals in player disciplinary cases. It is unclear if that remains true in the wake of Berman’s ruling Thursday.
