NFL Could Be Close To Talking With Walsh

Former Patriots employee Matt Walsh is reportedly close to reaching a deal with the National Football League that will allow him to speak openly about any knowledge or physical evidence he may have of New England’s alleged spying tactics.  The “Boston Globe” reports that the league and Walsh’s lawyer are making progress in negotiations to allow Walsh to be interviewed.  Walsh, who was fired in January of 2003 for allegedly tape-recording a conversation with Vice President of Player Personnel Scott Pioli, says he has evidence of the Patriots’ spying and wants legal protection from the NFL in order to come forward.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was fined $500-thousand, and the team was fined $250-thousand and forfeited its first-round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft after an employee was caught videotaping New York Jets coaches during the 2007 season opener.  The Patriots are being accused of taping the Rams’ final walkthrough before the Super Bowl in 2002.  The Patriots and the NFL have both denied the allegations.  New England upset the Rams to win Super Bowl 36.
