But as of Saturday night, he has yet to be apprised of any updates on the situation. Irsay spoke with Around The NFL on the Red Carpet prior to NFL Honors and leads a few interesting takeaways from the event.
"You know I haven't, but I have spoken to the commissioner and I feel like it's in good hands in terms of the league looking into it," he said. "But I haven't gotten any updates over the last few days."
"Of course, obviously we're (interested) but at the same time, I know they're going to look into it and find out what happened," he said. "I really don't have any new information right now."
Some other nuggets of interest:
- Cris Carter says a deal between the Indianapolis Colts and his son, Duron, has not yet been completed. "Um, they haven't done anything yet. I think it's still a rumor. It's a rumor. Don't believe all the rumors."
When asked if he's excited to see what happens with Duron in the near future, Carter had this: "I'm excited to see him get it finalized and to see him join a team."
"He's really excited," Reed said. "Very enthusiastic about the team and he'll realize what that team means to the city, and if you do well you can stay a long time. His personality, he's the perfect fit anywhere but Buffalo needs that."
- Niners receiver Anquan Boldin seems to be a little more excited about new head coach Jim Tomsula than his counterparts in the media.
"I think we're all excited," Boldin said. "Anytime there's change, there's optimism. I think that the changes that we're making, I think they'll be good for the team. I think we're all looking forward to seeing what they'll bring to the team. I've talked to some of the guys, and like I said, they're excited."
- J.J. Watt was a longshot to win the MVP award Saturday night, but didn't seem that broken up about it.
"It's an honor to be here, obviously," Watt said. "Like I've always said, awards are awards. You put your resume on the field and as long as you're trying to make your teammates and coaches proud, give the fans a good show, that's all that matters to me."
"The moment you become satisfied, the moment you feel complacent, that's when you begin your decline. That's when you feel like you don't have to work anymore."
"Nothing that stands out to me except for, obviously, the replacement officials," he said. "The fail mary in the corner of the end zone. But those were different circumstances, those were guys who shouldn't have been making those calls. This is the NFL, the postseason, and these guys graded out highest at their spot."
