New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) -
In his first public comments since being besieged with criticism over his handling of a swarm of recent abuse cases, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced his intention to implement a new player conduct policy and have it in place prior to this year's Super Bowl.
After acknowledging that he "got it wrong" in regards to the controversial case involving former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, Goodell said he plans to meet with NFL Players Association director DeMaurice Smith next week to discuss potential changes.
"There will be changes to our personal conduct policy. I know this will happen because we will make it happen. Nothing is off the table," said Goodell. "They will have a set of clear and transparent rules for league and club personnel, owners and players. My goal is to complete this work by the Super Bowl."

Tampa Bay was behind 56-0 until two late garbage scores drew them within five TDs of its NFC South rival.
