NEW YORK (AP) - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and union leader DeMaurice Smith met Tuesday to discuss the league's workplace environment.
In light of the bullying scandal last season involving the Dolphins' Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito, both sides want to improve the working atmosphere. Goodell last month targeted this meeting as a chance to create open lines of discussion about the issue.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says the meeting brought ''productive discussions.'' NFL Players Association spokesman George Atallah called it ''positive.''
Also involved Tuesday were new NFLPA President Eric Winston and new NFL director of football operations Troy Vincent.
