SAN DIEGO – The NFL’s image has taken a beating in recent years with the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, ongoing questions about player head injuries, its stance toward domestic violence and, of course, “Deflategate.”

The NFL is trying to determine whether wrongdoing by that individual occurred, Fox Sports reported.
