WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Arlen Specter wants an independent investigation of the Patriots' taping of opposing coaches' signals similar to the Mitchell Report on performance enhancing drugs in baseball.
Specter again criticized the league's handling of the investigation during a news conference Wednesday. Specter is the senior Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee. He met with former New England video assistant Matt Walsh a day earlier.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell indicated he considered the investigation over after meeting with Walsh on Tuesday.
