Bears chairman expresses faith in Roger Goodell

Chicago Bears chairman George H. McCaskey issued a statement about the Ray Rice investigation.

The NFL appointed former FBI director Robert Mueller III to conduct an investigation into how the evidence was handled.

“We welcome the independent investigation to understand the handling of evidence in the Ray Rice domestic violence case," McCaskey said. "It is important to know the facts. NFL fans deserve them. Our family has complete faith in the Commissioner. He is a man of integrity and has acknowledged the initial response to Mr. Rice’s situation was inadequate.

"We agreed with his assessment and were encouraged he took measures to take a much stronger stance on domestic violence. We believe in the importance of the NFL’s position as a leader in the community and expect the League, and its teams, to meet the high standards that come with this responsibility.”
