Goodell tells Lauer: 'Every player, every team is subject to the same rules'
In a "Today" exclusive, Matt Lauer sat down with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Portions of the interview aired yesterday morning on "Sunday Today with Willie Geist" and during "Sunday Night Football."
When asked about Tom Brady's suspension, Goodell told Lauer: "Every player, every team is subject to the same rules. We don't have rules for marquee players and we don't have rules for marquee teams. Everybody plays under the same rules."
In addition to Tom Brady's "Deflategate," Goodell discussed Colin Kaepernick and recent player protests as well as concussions. The interview will air Wednesday, Sept. 14, on "Today." The show airs at 7 a.m. on NBC.
