Goodell offers no update on Vicodin case in New Orleans

If any justice comes from commissioner Roger Goodell in the case of the New Orleans Saints and the alleged cabinet that used to be full of now missing Vicodin, it will not come swiftly.

The team’s former director of security accused coach Sean Payton and assistant coach Joe Vitt of stealing and or abusing the prescription painkiller. A civil lawsuit, which also accused general manager Mickey Loomis of conspiring to cover up the matter, was dropped and now the matter is headed to arbitration where the dirty details will remain private, like the Saints would have preferred them to be all along.

"I haven't gotten an update on that recently to be able to give you anything on it," Goodell said Tuesday from the league meetings, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Per the report, Saints executive vice president Dennis Lauscha said the team has not been contacted by the NFL in the matter. Really? The DEA is sniffing around the Saints and the NFL office hasn’t bothered to even pick up the phone on this matter? We find that a little difficult to imagine. For Goodell to say he has not received an update on the matter suggests that at some point, he has received information.

Whether or not anything comes of the Vicodin case with the NFL, we’ll just have to wait and see.
