Angelo ignores Goodell, refuses to compensate Ravens

SHARE Angelo ignores Goodell, refuses to compensate Ravens

The league continues to investigate Thursday night’s botched trade with the Ravens.

“We’re looking into it,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello reiterated Friday night.

Bears general manager Jerry Angelo accepted responsibility for the mix up, leading to speculation that the Bears would have to surrender the fourth-round pick originally included in the deal or some other form of compensation.

ESPN reported that commissioner Roger Goodell recommended the Bears compensate the Ravens in some way. Angelo, who apologize to Newsome on Thursday night, declined. Later, he shipped that same fourth-rounder to the Redskins to move up in the second round to select Oregon State defensive tackle Stephen Paea on Friday.

“They have rules when you do something wrong, not when you make mistakes,” Angelo said. “A mistake was made. No rule was broken. Let’s make that clear here. I think we made the proper amends on our part. Certainly, there was no intent.”
