If you’re hoping to see the WFT report get released, don’t hold your breath.
Roger Goodell doubled down on the league’s decision not to make public the results of its investigation into the workplace culture at the Washington Football Team, saying the anonymity of the people who cooperated with the investigation was too high a priority to allow the league to do so.
“We’re very conscious of making sure we’re protecting those who came forward,” Goodell said after six hours of NFL owners meetings in midtown Manhattan. “That was a very high priority.”
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell saying that some WFT employees were guaranteed anonymity in cooperating with the Wilkinson investigation, and protecting anonymity is why the report won’t be public any more than the summary.

“I do think he’s been held accountable,” Goodell said of Daniel Snyder. “More importantly, steps were put in place to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
Sounds more like the NFL is protecting Snyder than their sources.
Snyder’s wife, Tanya, who is a co-CEO of the franchise, has taken over daily operations, and the team was fined $10 million in the wake of the investigation.
A slap on the wrist.
