Ray Rice case: Mueller has completed initial interviews with Ravens officials
The investigation into the Ray Rice case by the NFL could take a really, really long time.
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller has considerable work to be done to complete his investigation into the NFL’s handling of Ray Rice’s domestic violence discipline, but he has wrapped up a round of thorough initial meetings with various members of the Ravens organization, league sources said.
Mueller could end up doubling back with several of those figures depending on how the investigation turns, but he has spent significant time interviewing team officials.
Mueller’s investigation could take several more months, and while he has been asked to keep timeliness in mind when conducting his business, there are no parameters placed on him whatsoever. As such, the investigation will continue in a vigorous manner and Mueller has declined to offer any timetable to the parties with which he has met, sources said. That could speak to the process being lengthy.
There are issues that have been raised by the NFLPA and others as to whether or not Mueller, who has ties to the NFL through his law firm (which used to employ Ravens team president Dick Cass, one of several key figures in this case), is compromised and whether or not he should be the person overseeing this investigation. The NFL has steadfastly supported him, as one would expect, as an independent third party, and his findings will no doubt be heavily scrutinized.
Ray Rice, meanwhile, could be reinstated by the league within a month.
