NEW YORK -- One follow-up from the conclusion of Roger Goodell's 28-minute press conference today:
After the press conference concluded, a league spokesman gathered the assembled media members with NFL outside counsel Gregg Levy.
Levy then said the following:
"[Matt] Walsh was asked during the interview today whether after the [Rams] walkthrough, anyone asked him about what he had seen. He said 'yes'. He saw Brian Daboll, who I understand is an assistant coach for the Patriots -- or was at the time -- and Daboll asked him what he saw. Walsh said two things -- one, he had seen Marshall Faulk in a formation to receive a kickoff or a punt, and he had been asked about offensive formations, particularly about the use of the tight end. My understanding is that is not consistent with what we had learned prior to the interview, during the course of the investigation. At this point, it's uncorroborated, but it's something the league is going to look into."
Levy was asked if that could lead the league to levy more penalties against the Patriots. A senior league spokesman stepped in and said the answer was no, as Roger Goodell had stated.
Levy explained that he felt the information was important to disclose.
"As I was walking the commissioner to the car, he said 'nobody asked me about that and it would be worthwhile to make sure people have that tidbit,'" Levy said.
Daboll is now an assistant coach with the New York Jets.
