Florida State has suspended quarterback Jameis Winston for the entire game Saturday night against No. 22 Clemson, the school announced late Friday.
Roger Goodell said Friday there have been too many recent examples of the NFL "doing wrong" and "that starts with me," and followed it up with a goal of implementing new personal conduct policies by the Super Bowl.
The Timberwolves offer Eric Bledsoe a max contract in a sign-and-trade with the Suns, sources say.
Florida State has suspended Jameis Winston for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday, extending its initial punishment of one half after the quarterback made ''offensive and vulgar'' comments about female anatomy earlier this week. Interim President Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox announced the decision late Friday night. There had been criticism that the original punishment for Winston's latest embarrassing off-field incident was too light.

Gordon will be eligible to play in Cleveland's final six games after the league and NFL Players Association agreed on revisions to the substance abuse program two days after announcing changes on performance enhancing drugs.
Temple still has two games left in the regular season.
However, after Saturday's 39-36 loss to Central Florida, coach Matt Rhule addressed the offseason and said that upgrading the team's talent - especially on defense - is a huge priority.
Central Florida coach George O’Leary had nothing but praise for Temple Monday during his American Athletic Conference teleconference on Monday.
Central Florida (8-1), ranked 17h in the nation, needed a 23-yard field goal with time running out over the weekend to pull out a 39-36 victory over Temple, which fell to 1-9 on the season with two games left to play.
When Temple, leading by 20-16 with 1 minute, 50 seconds to play, failed to convert on fourth and 1 at the Rutgers 27 and turned the ball over to the Scarlet Knights, Rutgers quarterback Gary Nova felt confident.Read more...
