We knew this was going to be the outcome seeing that Henderson is in Commissioner Mara’s…I mean Goodell’s pocket.


I hope Zek sues the NFL and exposes them…This whole investigation was one sided and they ignored all of the factual information…The fact that the accuser, Tiffany Thompson, got caught lying about this whole situation, attempted to extort money from him, and tried to get several people to lie for her…One of her friends came forward as did one of her family members and told the truth…Zek also had all of the text messages proven her false accusations…This is all a joke…Goodell should be fired over this, after all he is the commissioner
