Mueller report: NFL didn't see video ahead of public release

The NFL didn't see a graphic video of former Ravens running back Ray Rice hitting his future wife, Janay, in a domestic violence incident prior to it being publicly released, according to NFL investigator and former FBI director Robert Mueller III.

"We found no evidence that anyone at the NFL had or saw the in-elevator video before it was publicly shown," the report stated. "We also found no evidence that a woman at the NFL acknowledged receipt of that video in a voicemail message on April 9, 2014."

Mueller was critical of the NFL for not doing more to investigate the incident.

"We concluded there was substantial information about the incident -- even without the in-elevator video -- indicating the need for a more thorough investigation," the report said. "The NFL should have done more with the information it had, and should have taken additional steps to obtain all available information about the February 15 incident."
