He was a player that was on injured reserve. He practiced, I believe, back in 2001. He identified the player. We're verifying that. So that is something that we have been looking into.
I would tell you up front, though, that the way we normally handle those matters, those are a matter of a team fine, if they are verified, and then they are handled on that basis. I would expect that if we were to verify it, that I would consider it part of the fine that I implemented against the Patriots, close to $750,000 between the Patriots and Bill Belichick, and I would not take any further action on that. But we will be verifying that."
If verified he will consider a fine and make it part of the $750,000 he has already impossed on the Patriots. So basically, the Cheatriots have carte blanche to do whatever they want. All the fines imposed against them will go against the $750,000 they were already assessed. What a true weasel this Goodell is. He can't leave this league fast enough in my opinion.
