Roger Goodell on ESPN Radio on whether gambling in Las Vegas is an issue for possible Raiders relocation: "All of us have evolved a little bit on gambling. To me, where I cross the line is anything that can impact on the integrity of the game. If people think it is something that can influence the outcome of a game, we are absolutely opposed to that."

Olney: PED use not always linked to size
MLB 

Buster Olney says that unless the MLBPA opens up the CBA and gives teams the option to void multiyear contracts for players busted for PEDs, the reward outweighs the risk for players.

Roger Goodell said on ESPN Radio that he would still consider changes to the NFL's personal conduct policy and criticized the NFLPA for rejecting a recent proposal that "would have been better for players." But he made clear: "I'm not going to hand off the integrity of the NFL to someone who doesn't understand our business."

The Chris Colabello and Dee Gordon suspensions have ramped up debate on whether the current MLB penalty structure is enough of a deterrent to potential PED users. Recent developments will also spur discussion on whether teams should be stuck with the tab on multi-million dollar deals for players who break the rules. It's a volatile and contentious topic that can only add to the complexity of the ongoing MLB labor talks.

Roger Goodell said on ESPN Radio that "of course" the NFL would pick up the phone if Tom Brady's representatives called to discuss a settlement to Deflategate. But he gave no indication the league would budge from its four-game suspension.

Roger Goodell on Laremy Tunsil: "I think it's all part of what makes the draft so exciting. Clubs make decisions. Sometimes they take risks. Sometimes they do the right things. Sometimes they don't, and we'll see. Hopefully he is going to turn our to be a great young player."

The Panthers had UCLA OLB Myles Jack on their draft board when they selected at No. 30, but the knee injury kept them from taking that position for the second straight year. "Very frankly, the kid came out and said he is going to need microfracture (surgery)," GM Dave Gettleman said. So would Gettleman consider Jack in the second round at No. 62? "You're talking hypotheticals," he said with a smile. "He was on the board."

Seven teams called the Panthers looking to move into the first round for the 30th pick. General manager Dave Gettleman was set on Louisiana DT Vernon Butler by then. "People mistake kindness for weakness," Gettleman said. "The deals weren't very attractive, frankly. When we got on the clock all of a sudden they started to up the ante, but we made up our mind."

Dee Gordon's PED suspension is a shocker. But it's also a reminder that for most players, PED use was never about bulking up to hit a bunch of HRs. Players take what they take for many reasons. Need to add strength to turn outs into hits, singles into doubles, fatigue into energy, failure into success. But whatever their reasons, they're responsible for what they put into their bodies. Dee Gordon is just the latest to learn that lesson and pay that price.
