The league also admits it mishandled the case involving Ray Rice.


The NFL announced strong new punishments for players who commit domestic violence.

In a letter to team owners, NFL commissioner Roger Goodall said that the penalty for a first offense is a six-game ban under the personal conduct policy. Players who commit a second offense will be banned for life.

The NFL was widely criticized after giving Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice a two-game suspension following a domestic violence arrest during the offseason. Back in February, Rice allegedly struck his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, during an altercation at a casino in Atlantic City. Surveillance footage showed him dragging a seemingly unconscious Palmer out of the elevator.
