Roger Goodell will be speaking shortly.
Goodell says he got the handling of the Ray Rice situation wrong.
Last week, he asked former FBI director Robert Mueller to conduct an independent investigation into the handling of Ray Rice's conduct.
His findings will lead to swift action, Goodell says.
We can use the NFL to help create change in society with respect to domestic violence and sexual assault, Goodell says.
We will enhance and improve our current domestic violence prevention programs, Goodell says.
Goodell: Everyone in the NFL will participate in education sessions followed by training programs developed by a top group of experts.
Goodell: Domestic violence and sexual assault exist everywhere and in every community. We are committed to addressing these problems, but we can't solve them by ourselves. Law enforcement, social service orgs. and families are the cornerstones to addressing these problems.
Goodell: We've entered into long-term partnerships with the National Domestic Violence Hotline.
Goodell: We will punish behavior that is unacceptable: child abuse, sexual assault, irresponsible use of firearms, illegal use of alcohol or drugs.
Goodell: Consequences must be clear, consistent and current. Must be implemented fairly and transparently. Our current rules and procedures failed to meet this standard.
Goodell: Country has legal system that everyone needs to respect. Everyone deserves a fair process.
Goodell: We will bring together players, coaches, owners, union reps and outside experts to set the right standards and procedures.
Goodell: We need to consider my role in the process. There will be changes in our personal conduct policy. We will make it happen. Nothing is off the table.
Goodell: Goal is to complete this by the Super Bowl.
Goodell: We do everything we can to protect our players on the field from injury.
Goodell: The rules for personal conduct need to be as clear as the rules for competition.
Goodell: Many of our players, coaches and staff are doing amazing things in their communities. I ask everyone in the NFL to make positive changes going forward.
Q: If the victims had been someone you loved would you be satisfied with the handling of the crisis?
Goodell: No. I'm not satisfied with the process or conclusions. That's why we said we were going to make changes to our policies.
Q: You've had extreme unilateral power in determining discipline. Are you willing to give up some of that power?
Goodell: I said everything was on the table. We want to outside experts to give us perspective on the process. We can't continue to operate like this.
Q: Law enforcement in Atlanta say they don't have record of NFL asking for Ray Rice video.
Goodell: We work closely with law enforcement. That's something else we're going to look at. Should everything be gathered through law enforcement?
Goodell: We asked for it on several occasions according to our security department. I'm confident our people did that.
Q: I was in Minnesota and saw kids wearing Adrian Peterson jerseys. Their mom said she was conflicted about it. What's your message to that mother?
Goodell: We're like a microcosm of society. We have a lot of young men who play, or coach, or in the league that make mistakes. I'm disappointed but what we see so far is tragic. I have two daughters who are 13. We need to allow the facts to proceed. Our children will make mistake. We have to make sure they take responsibility for those mistakes.
Q: In 2012, you suspended Payton for a year. Have you considered resigning?
Goodell: I have not. We have a lot of work to do. That's my focus.
