Call for Goodell resignation
MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — The father of a woman who once dated Bears receiver Brandon Marshall is calling for commissioner Roger Goodell to resign because of the way he handled the women’s abuse case.
Clarence Watley says his daughter, Rasheedah Watley, was abused by Marshall.
Marshall was with Denver at the time and now plays for Chicago. He was suspended for three games in 2008, but the suspension was reduced to one game. He has denied the allegations.
Watley says he and others wrote to Goodell about the case and never heard back from league officials. Watley called the NFL’s investigation one-sided.
