Roger Goodell ‘proud of our league’ after show of unity

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was pleased with the way teams reacted Sunday in the wake of divisive comments made by President Donald Trump.

“The way we reacted today, and this weekend, made me proud,” Goodell said. “I’m proud of our league.”

“I spent a lot of time listening to our players and coaches and owners over the past two days,” Goodell said Sunday afternoon. “They really care about our league. I just think we need more understanding. I was trying to find out with the players and coaches, ‘How are you feeling? What’s going on in your locker rooms?’ They were trying to figure out ways to respond.”
