Tank Johnson, who is expected to be released from the Cook County (Ill.) Jail on Sunday after serving a 60-day sentence for firearms possession, is set to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell next Wednesday in New York.
In the past, the NFL was reluctant to punish so swiftly, so sternly. Not anymore. Roger Goodell's lengthy suspensions of Pacman Jones and Chris Henry sent a much-needed message to the players, writes Len Pasquarelli.
Commissioner Roger Goodell said Saturday night that he has been in discussions with officials from the NFL Players Association about the eligibility of league players who have been suspended to earn so-called "honors" like the Pro Bowl squad.
