Patriots await fate

Updated 7 years ago

Former Patriots assistant Matt Walsh will meet
with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL’) on May 13th to
discuss New England’s videotaping of opposing teams.
The NFL had been negotiating for two months with Walsh, who has
indicated he has further information regarding Spygate.
Goodell fined Patriots coach Bill Belichick $500,000 and the
team was fined $250,000 and was stripped of its first-round draft
choice for taking video of New York Jets coaches on the sideline of
the 2007 season opener.
The league says the agreement with Walsh, who now works as an
assistant golf pro in Hawaii, will allow him to share with the NFL
information about activities that took place during his employment
with the club from 1997-2003.
Walsh will also be required to return any tapes and other items
in his possession that belong to the Patriots.
