Roger Goodell was at The Masters when Rice tape reportedly delivered to NFL


After an Associated Press report on Wednesday revealed tape of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee Janay had been delivered by a law-enforcement official to the NFL, the league said it has hired former FBI director Robert Mueller to investigate its handling of the case.

The probe into the tape's delivery to the NFL's offices on or near April 9 will, at least in part, have a tie to Augusta National Golf Club and The Masters.

Commissioner Roger Goodell, a member at Augusta National, was at the year's first major on April 9 and photographed on the premises, as pointed out Wednesday by Geoff Shackelford.

This doesn't mean that Goodell wasn't apprised of the tape's delivery or that he didn't see it, but he was not at the NFL offices for their delivery.
