Saints quarterback Drew Brees didn't mince words about NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in an interview with Sport Illustrated's Peter King.
In the interview, Brees took umbrage with how Goodell has meted out punishments for league violations.
Brees told King: "Nobody trusts him. Nobody trusts him. I'm not talking about a DUI, or using a gun in a strip club, which are pretty clear violations. I think there're too many times where the league has come to its decision in a case before calling a guy in, and the interview is just a façade. I think now if a guy has to come in to talk to Roger, he'll be very hesitant because he'll think the conclusion has already been reached."
Brees also comments on the suspension of head coach Sean Payton and the Saints moving past the bounty scandal and punishments. (See full interview.)
