NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday that the NFL plans to make public the evidence that bounties were paid by New Orleans players, NFL.com reported Tuesday.

Asked at the Spring League Meeting whether he expected the proof to be revealed, Goodell said, "Yes, I do. Eventually."

Goodell said no more information will be released to the public until the appeals and grievance processes are finished.

He also said the NFL players union "expressly told the players not to cooperate in the bounty investigation."

"I invited them in and they decided not to do that," Goodell said.
