The five-game suspension served by Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson ends after tonight's game against the Bills. And Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Wilson told him he'd be at the office when the team arrived home after the game.
But NFL commissioner Roger Goodell makes no apologies to the severity of the penalty.
Wilson was suspended five games for violating the league's drug policy. But Wilson openly questioned the severity of the penalty after Patriots coach Bill Belichik was not suspended by the league in the now infamous "camera/spy gate" scandal from last month.
"We have a very specific policy regarding steroid or (Human Growth Hormone) use," Goodell said Monday. "It's very clear what the penalty is both for players and people involved in the National Football League. He’s held to a higher standard. He was involved in a criminal activity and that calls for a specific penalty and that’s why he paid the five games so I make no apologies for that."
