NFL, NFLPA Name Derrick Brooks Appeals Officer

The NFL and NFL Players Association announced today that 2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee DERRICK BROOKS will serve as an appeals officer beginning this season.

Brooks will hear player appeals of on-field discipline and replaces MATT BIRK, who was named NFL Director of Football Development earlier this month.

Brooks spent 1995-2008 as a linebacker with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, playing in every game during his 14 seasons with the club, earning Pro Bowl honors 11 times and helping Tampa Bay to a victory in Super Bowl XXXVII.

A longtime fixture in the Tampa Bay community, Brooks has served as the president of the Tampa Bay Storm in the Arena Football League since 2011.

“Derrick views this game with a very unique understanding as both a player and a team president,” said NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations TROY VINCENT. “His review of appeals will be informed by experience as a player and as an executive.”

Brooks will join former NFL player and coach TED COTTRELL as the appeals officers for 2014.

“Derrick was jointly selected by the Players and the NFL and we expect he will bring expertise and professionalism to his role as an arbitration officer,” said NFLPA Senior Director of Player Affairs and Development JASON BELSER. “We look forward to working with him.”

Brooks and Cottrell are jointly appointed and jointly compensated by the NFL and NFLPA. As per the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the fine schedule is provided to the NFLPA prior to training camp for its review and approval.

Ray Rice Suspended Without Pay For Two Games and Fined An Additional Game Check For Violating NFL Personal Conduct Policy

COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL notified Baltimore Ravens running back RAY RICE today that he will be suspended without pay for the first two 2014 regular season games and fined an additional game check for conduct detrimental to the NFL in violation of the league’s Personal Conduct Policy for his February arrest.

In May, Rice resolved the charges by entering into a pretrial intervention program. Under this program, he will not be prosecuted and is not required to serve jail time or pay any fine. After one year, the charges will be expunged and will not be part of Rice’s record.

Following this agreement, Goodell met with Rice and his wife.  Despite the court’s decision not to impose criminal punishment, the Commissioner determined, as he advised Rice, that the conduct was incompatible with NFL policies and warranted disciplinary action.

In a letter to Rice, Commissioner Goodell stated:

“As you acknowledged during our meeting, your conduct was unquestionably inconsistent with league polices and the standard of behavior required of everyone who is part of the NFL. The league is an entity that depends on integrity and in the confidence of the public and we simply cannot tolerate conduct that endangers others or reflects negatively on our game. This is particularly true with respect to domestic violence and other forms of violence against women.

“You will be expected to continue to take advantage of the counseling and other professional services you identified during our meeting. As you noted, this additional assistance has been of significant benefit to you and your wife, and it should remain a part of your practice as appropriate.

“I believe that you are sincere in your desire to learn from this matter and move forward toward a healthy relationship and successful career. I am now focused on your actions and expect you to demonstrate by those actions that you are prepared to fulfill those expectations.”

Rice’s suspension will begin on August 30. He will be eligible for reinstatement on Monday, September 12 following the Ravens’ game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rice may participate in all aspects of training camp and preseason games.

Rice may appeal this decision within three days.
