Goodell said he'll apply those recommendations to his own findings, then make a decision about player discipline. He didn't say there was a timetable.

As for Saints quarterback Drew Brees' tweet that he needs an explanation for Payton's season-long suspension, Goodell said the reasoning is well mapped-out in the release sent out Wednesday.
