Ray Rice was summoned to the principals office on Monday, and he was asked to bring his lovely wife along with him. ESPN.com is reporting that Rice and his wife Janay, met with Goodell at league headquarters in New York.
This is an important step as the NFL determines its discipline for Rice, who was arrested and indicted for striking his then-fiancée. Rice pleaded not guilty to a third-degree charge of aggravated assault and was later accepted into a pretrial intervention program last month.
The league could fine and suspend Rice under the personal conduct policy. This is his first major off-the-field incident.
Rice was arrested and charged with simple assault-domestic violence in February after a physical altercation with Janay Palmer at the Revel Casino and Hotel in Atlantic City.
