CHICAGO (AP) -Chicago Bears defensive tackle Tank Johnson met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday to discuss legal problems that landed the player in jail, but no discipline was immediately handed down by the league.
The meeting in New York came three days after Johnson was released from the Cook County Jail, where he served 60 days of a 120-day sentence for violating probation on a weapons charge.
NFL spokesman Randall Liu said the meeting took place at an undisclosed location. He said he did not know how long the meeting lasted, who else attended or other details.
Liu said he did not know when Goodell would make a decision on whether to suspend Johnson.
Bears spokesman Scott Hagel also did not have any details about the meeting. He said the Bears will hold a mandatory minicamp starting Friday and Johnson is expected to participate.
Johnson could become the third player suspended by Goodell in little more than a month for off-field behavior. In April, Goodell suspended Tennessee Titans' defensive back Adam ``Pacman'' Jones for the entire 2007 season and Cincinnati Bengals' wide receiver Chris Henry for eight games before introducing a strengthened personal conduct policy.
Last week, Goodell heard an appeal from Jones over the length of his suspension. Jones has been questioned by police 10 times since being drafted in 2005.
In December, police raided Johnson's Gurnee home and found six unregistered firearms - a violation of his probation on an earlier gun charge.
That charge stemmed from Johnson's 2005 arrest after a Chicago nightclub valet reported seeing Johnson with a handgun in his SUV. He subsequently pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge.
Two days after the raid in Gurnee, Willie B. Posey, Johnson's bodyguard who had been arrested after the raid, was shot and killed in an early morning fight while he and Johnson were at a Chicago nightclub.
Johnson was suspended by the Bears for one game for being at the club.
In March, Johnson began his jail term for violating his probation. Last month, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor weapons charge as part of a deal with prosecutors that kept him from serving more time in jail. He was ordered to serve 45 days, which he was able to serve concurrently with the sentence for violating his probation.
